About Space Week

Space Week is YOUR week to focus on the wonders and realities of the Universe around us.

Taking place from October 4-10, 2017; Space Week is Ireland’s newest national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) week in parallel with World Space Week. People will explore how as citizens ‘Under One Sky’ the power of critical thinking, creativity, science and technology can shape our understanding of life on Earth and our place in the broader Universe.

Organise an event in your school or community or search the website for events in your area.

Space Week is brought to you by CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory in association with Science Foundation Ireland and ESERO Ireland.
