Primary Science Fair

Now going into its eighth year, the RDS Primary Science Fair is a non-competitive forum, showcasing STEM investigations (science, technology, engineering and maths) undertaken by primary school classes across Ireland. The investigations encourage children’s innate curiosity to explore the science behind the everyday. Open to Key Stage 2, and fourth, fifth and sixth classes, across the island of Ireland, the Fair will take place in Belfast’s, Waterfront for this first time this summer (June 8-9). The Fair will also feature an exciting science-themed educational entertainment programme specifically designed for primary school aged children and will feature a range of interactive shows, demonstrations and hands-on exhibits. Participating classes and their teachers (i.e. those showcasing their class project) have free admission to the Fair, where they will showcase their work and enjoy a day of science-themed workshops, shows and entertainment.
