WexSci, Wexford Science Festival, is the County Wexford annual festival of science, technology, engineering, art and maths which takes place this year from the 8th to the 15th of November.

From afterschool workshops, opportunities to meet with those working in STEAM careers, hearing from national and international scientists and researchers to taking part in Baking in Space with Niamh Shaw and Andrew Smyth, the 2020 festival will have something for everyone.

The WexSci team have been busy transforming activities to brand new digital formats for people of all ages to explore and discover science, technology, engineering, art and maths in new ways. Experience our full programme of free events including talks, workshops and experiments, as part of our new online festival programme.
