There is a special place in the heart Dublin. A place in which anyone with a thirst for knowledge, a thirst for science can go and learn something new. A delapitated car park in Trinty College was repurposed to bring science and art together.
The result was the Science Gallery. Here, issues in science and everyday life are brought to the attention of the public.
The Gallery has programmes throughout the year in the form of exhibts. These exhibits hope to engage young people in science and issues affecting the world.
The Science Gallery is supported by the Wellcome Trust, Deloitte, ESB, Google, ICON, NTR Foundation, and Pfizer. It receives support from government bodies such as the Department of Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht, and Science Foundation Ireland.
It is hoped to open more Science Gallery’s in cities around the world by 2020, the first being London in 2017.
Entrance to the Science Gallery is free of charge. You can visit it at Naughton Insitute, Trinity College, Pearse Street, Dublin 2.
