Ballyhoura Science Week 2021 strives to bring fun and interactive science exhibits to communities in East Limerick and North Cork

Ballyhoura Science Week 2021 is in person and bigger than ever

The 3rd annual Ballyhoura Science Week takes place from November 10-13, supported by Science foundation Ireland, and featuring a range of free science events across the Ballyhoura Region and online.

Ballyhoura Science Week has always strived to bring fun and interactive science exhibits to communities in East Limerick and North Cork, by providing opportunities to experience Science in a whole new and invigorating way, up close and in a way that leaves a lasting impact.

Adding to the line-up this year are our Women in STEM… at the Theatre evening events, on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 November from 6.30 to 8.30pm in Friars Gate Theatre, Kilmallock.   These sessions will provide a forum for examining the often under-appreciated and under-represented role of women working in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, by looking at inspiring women from the past, as well as those who are shaping our future.  Both evenings promise to be fun, with interactive table-top challenges, stirring videos and what promises to be a lively brainstorming panel discussions to get that grey matter working.

The Ballyhoura Family Science Day will be the highlight of Ballyhoura Science Week and will take place in Croom Sports Complex on Saturday, November 13 from 11am to 4pm. The event will showcase a wide variety of science exhibits, shows and hands-on workshops, suitable for all the family.

You can get involved with everyday citizen science at the eco village arena, step inside the exploration dome cinema experience. and get up close with live reptiles from the National Reptile Museum. Get hands on in our Kids’ Corner and learn how to make slime, or tune in to one of our interactive shows with dinosaurs!

Adults will be welcome to put their aprons on,  and Cook along with our in-house chef as she whips up a storm as part of the Community Food initiative.  Healthy eating, nutrition advice, competitions and tasty treats will whet your appetite for more.

All events will be operated in line with Covid-19 safety protocols, and all attendees over 12 years of age will be requested to wear masks to ensure the safety of all.
