Directors Foreword

We are delighted to bring you the programme for the inaugural NI Science Festival which, for 11 days between 19th February – 1st March 2015, offers a stimulating and wide range of events focusing on the wonders of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

During the day the festival will present a whole host of workshops, talks and interactive activities for young people, parents and schools. In the evening the festival will come alive with an eclectic mix of scientific debates, talks, theatre, comedy, music and film for adults.

This festival is the product of some truly amazing support and we would like to give a big thank you to our funders, event partners and volunteers whose dedication, foresight and imagination has helped build a truly remarkable programme of events.

So come to the NI Science Festival for a new kind of experience. Bring your family, bring your friends. Most of all bring your curiosity, imagination and enthusiasm!
