WexSci, Wexford Science Festival, is the County Wexford annual festival of science, technology, engineering, art and maths. For the first time in 2020, the Wexford Science Festival went predominantly virtual. 

Supported by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), the 2020 festival was a week-long programme of exciting and informative events that provided opportunities to meet STEM experts, learn all about space, climate change, sustainability, coding, 3D printing and much more.

People of all ages took part in these events from their homes and schools and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated and supported the festival.

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.
