The Sligo Science Festival, supported by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), is a week-long programme of activities and events each November, which aims to make science more interesting and accessible to children and adults alike.
It highlights how science, technology and engineering are hugely relevant to us all in our everyday lives, lead to interesting and exciting career options and develop creativity in our children. The Sligo event is organised by the School of Science at IT Sligo with events taking place at various locations and venues across the county over the seven days. The events are free and open to the public.
