About Us

The Sligo Science Festival is a 8 day event that takes place during Science Week. The festival highlights STEM engagement throughout the week by delivering a Science Fair Day at IT Sligo, hosting science shows, workshops, demonstrations and displays, together with a comprehensive programme of talks, road shows, exhibitions and debates for all ages and backgrounds during science week.

IT Sligo’s School of Science has produced a Science Fair Day since 1999, subsequently developing this into a wider reaching annual Science Festival since 2010. In 2017, the Festival employed an external project manager to develop the festival going forward. The programme engagement ranges from pre-school activities, primary/secondary schools level, career path to adult debates with activities from sitting to hiking, from morning to night.
