Louth Science Festival runs from November 11th-23rd 2019. This is the second year of the festival organised by Louth Library Service. Funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and supported by Louth County Council, the festival programme offers a host of free creative, innovative and inspiring events for schools and the general public taking place across all five branch libraries in Louth.
SFI research shows that Louth is a low intervention county in terms of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) participation. Through our varied programme of free events aimed at all ages, we hope to make STEAM education accessible and fun to all, and to stimulate interest and debate around all aspects of science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.
Louth Library Service has engaged highly regarded facilitators, lecturers and outreach staff to deliver events during the festival. Our collaboration with local industries in this programme gives us the opportunity to bring science to life by showing how STEAM is used in every day scenarios and business.
The full list of Louth Science Festival events taking place across 5 library branches can be seen on the attached brochure below.
