Galway Science & Technology Virtual Festival

We are delighted to bring you the 2020 Galway Science & Technology Virtual Festival Show!

Galway Science and Technology Festival presents its 2020 annual Family Day Exhibition as a Virtual Festival Show. It was broadcast live on Sunday 22nd of November and hosted by Clara Murray and John Sharpson of RTE Jnr After School Hub with a very special message from our President, Michael D Higgins.

A whole family experience with lots of fun and exciting activities including Scientific Sue’s awesome ‘Bouncing Bubbles’  magic show, get up close and personal with tarantulas and pythons with the Bug Doctor AKA Dr Michel Dugon of NUI Galway, as he tells us all about his favourite bugs and spiders plus James Soper will teach us about the ‘Science of the Circus’ and you can learn how to juggle while he explains the forces of gravity. 

Galway Atlantaquaria present a short film on ‘Ocean’s Connection and Care’ and you can enjoy the ‘Science of Exercise & Dance’ with a Zumba class. Our Superhero Scientist Barry Fitzgerald explains the ‘Science of Santa’ and assures us that Santa is 100% ready for COVID this year. ReelLIFE Science screen the winning videos from their latest competition and Medtronic showcase some of their amazing technologies. The show culminates with a big thank you to all our Sponsors from school students throughout Galway city and county and a dance off brought to you by Yuri and Monica of 4M Dance Studio!  The show was produced by MAVRIX
