Events

How many science-themed events do you go to in a month? Not enough?
Well let's change that.

Dublin has a really vibrant science community. Combine that with all the other things the Irish are known to be great at – which are mostly to do with having a blast – and you’ve got yourself a whole programme of amazing events. Running as part of City of Physics this year, we’ve got music, comedy, get-togethers, lectures, shows, art-installations…

As you can see below, this list goes on.

Arctic ice. Why does it have that colour and why is the mountain barely visible against the sky in the background? The answer is physics! 

Physicist Tom McCormack and Artist Siobhan McDonald (who took the this image) , both from University College Dublin, will discuss their recent collaborations from their own unique perspective.
