Science Week


Science Week 2021 takes place from 7th - 14th November. Teagasc will be participating with a full schedule of activities during the week. These activites will be listed here once details are finalised. You can view the 2020 page here to access some of the resources and videos from previous years.

The focus of Science Week 2021 will be on a national conversation between the general public, the research community, and policymakers. This conversation will highlight the potential of existing scientific discoveries but, crucially, it will ask what challenges are most important to the Irish public and how science might help. Most importantly Science Week will aim to capture these challenges, or questions, as they arise from the public.

Ask a Researcher - Teagasc Science Week

Ever wonder what a career in research is like? The Festival of Farming and Food (SFI Science Week at Teagasc) will facilitate schools to find out what is involved in a career in science. Our researchers will link up with schools where students can ask them anything! Teachers interested in arranging a speaker can email us at ScienceWeek@teagasc.ie with their request. Please note we will be facilitating "Ask a Researcher" during Science Week only 7-14 November 2021.
