About Us


The 2016 Festival will be the 19th year that the Galway Science & Technology Festival brings shows and workshops to primary and secondary schools throughout Galway City and County engaging the students and nurturing their interest in the STEM subjects.  The final day Exhibition is now the largest Science Exhibition for families in Ireland and a great day out full of entertainment, education and wonder.
This festival could not take place without the generous support of our local companies, education and government agencies who continue to sponsor the festival year on year and to whom we are most grateful.
