Let’s Talk Science Festival goes virtual

Free virtual events, workshops, and activities


The annual Let’s Talk Science Festival goes virtual on the 13th and 14th of November. This highly interactive festival, hosted by the Rediscovery Centre, explores the fun world of science and climate action. With lots of great events, it is a unique opportunity for all the family to have fun and explore science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM).


This year’s Let’s Talk Science festival has an emphasis on virtual workshops due to Covid-19 guidelines. The Rediscovery Centre has joined forces with an impressive selection of organisations to create an exciting range of online workshops. Organisations like the National Museum of Ireland, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, Global Action Plan, and the Rediscovery Centre will be hosting lots of interactive STEM workshops. There will also be downloadable activities and videos from Armagh Planetarium, Bat Conservation Ireland, Marine Institute, Eco Unesco, Met Éireann, and many more.


Sarah Clear, Education Programme Manager at the Rediscovery Centre, said “The Let’s Talk Science Festival is Ballymuns science festival and is in its fifth year. It is always a big event in the STEM calendar and the festival normally interacts with over 400 families at the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun but this year we have gone virtual due to Covid 19. The festival is packed full of great events and they are suitable for all ages. The events can be booked online and are lots of downloadable activities on the Rediscovery Centre website.”


The Let’s Talk Science Festival takes place during Science Week and it is supported by Science Foundation Ireland. The Let’s Talk Science Festival events can be booked on the Rediscovery  Centre website
