The programme aims to actively engage young students in science that is relevant to their everyday lives, and to expose them to the breadth of science on offer at DIT.

The DIT College of Sciences and Health will host no less than 10 separate events celebrated the week. The lineup includes exciting lecture-demonstrations on the science of bubbles, the genetics revolution, the physics of martial arts, and an exploration of vampires, blood and chemistry.

DIT contribute significantly to the national Science Week initiative each year. The Institute’s involvement goes back 21 years when it organised demonstration lectures in its labs for secondary students, says DIT Lecturer, Dr Siobhan Daly, who has coordinated Science Week for DIT since the beginning.
