ESB Science Blast

Involve the whole class in this non-competitive programme investigating the science behind a simple question and then display their work at a showcase event. Science is everywhere and in everything, so you can cover a huge amount of the curriculum through participation, from art to numeracy to language skills.


Join hundreds of other classes just like you at a brilliant showcase day, where students display their work and are entertained all day long with amazing science-themed entertainment shows. And every school that participates will receive €75 / £75 towards their travel costs.
