Schools & Educators

Throughout the Festival, a wide range of our partners will deliver a variety of talks and workshops designed to engage, excite and inspire your class!

We are delighted to bring you the Schools & Educators programme for the eighth NI Science Festival.

Thanks to the generous support from the Department for the Economy and the programming genius from our partners at the Nerve Centre, this is our most ambitious schools programme to date.

These events cut across a range of Key Stages and areas of interest. By getting in touch with the science that's all around us we believe that the Festival will help raise the level of science capital in Northern Ireland and enhance the lives of school pupils across the province.

We invite you to join us! #NISF22
