Festival Details

NI Science Festival will return for another year in 2017 and again, it's looking set to be as action-packed as ever as the first events and programmes have been revealed by the organisations. No matter where you are in Northern Ireland, there is sure to be something close by to attend, get the kids involved or take the whole family.

Set to take place over February 16th to 26th, the events will take place over a number of venues and locations, from Belfast to Enniskillen to Derry/Londonderry and will take up a number of different aspects of the programme. The NI Science Festival roadshow will be travelling the country, bringing their expertise and knowledge on the road with them, as they visit Enniskillen, Newry, Coleraine and Dungannon. The roadshow will see a number of different activities and workshops take place, such as Animal Handling sessions, a look at the stars in the portable Planeterium, plenty of STEM Modules as well as the Popping Chemistry crew amongst much more.

Also on the cards for the various days are events taking place under the Food For Thought programme. You can taste the first ever beer produced by Artificial Intelligence, produced by the company IntelligentX Brewing Co. Or if this isn't your pint, check out Sippy Up In A Brewery, which will take you on a series of tours around many of the North West's Brewing houses, including Northbound Brewery, Walled City Brewery and Dopey Dick's Brewing Company, with food and tasters all on offer, as well as talks and conferences.

That's not all though. You can find various other events which may be of interest, with subjects such as Maths, Physics, Astronomy, Mind & Body plus much more on offer through the NI Science Festival. For teens out there, if you fancy yourself to be the next hacker on the block, check out the Future7 Hackathon, held for teens, designed by teens.
