Showcasing science on a grand scale, European Researchers’ Night will take place in 800 venues across 320 cities on Friday, 28th September. After a very successful event in 2011, NUI Galway will once again be participating under the theme Sea2Sky along with partners the Marine Institute and Galway Atlantaquaria and our new partner, CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork to bring an even bigger event this year. The free, fun, family event will see hundreds of scientists presenting their research from the fields of Marine, Atmospherics and Astronomy.
Thousands are expected to visit the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill on the night, to participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, to watch demonstrations and simulations, to exchange ideas and get to know the researchers.
Come and discover the mysteries and miracles of science and research involving the Sea 2 Sky all around us, as part of the European Researchers’ Night.
European Researchers Night offers the opportunity to:
- discover stuff that is usually not open to the public (laboratories, research centres, museum collections)
- use some of the most recent technologies with the guidance of our expert scientists
- Participate in experiments, competitions and quizzes, watch demonstrations and simulations, exchange ideas and party with the researchers!
Researcher’s Night is a family-friendly event and young budding researchers can enter our fantastic competition.
