11:00 to 12:30

While the Summer School is now booked out, all are welcome to attend a Youth Symposium as part of the school's programme on Friday 20 July. Open to all members of our wider Youth Community, with representatives and young leaders from Science Gallery International, Science Gallery London and Science Gallery Venice, the Science Gallery Dublin will be transformed into a hub of cross-cultural collaboration and engagement.

Doors open at 11.00am, and you are invited to come share your own ideas and opinions in our discussion panel: 'The Future of Education and Employment — The Soft Skills Our Youth Need to Stay Ahead of the 21st Century Curve'. Tickets are free but registration is required — and if you can't make it in person, do keep an eye on the Science Gallery's Facebook and YouTube channels to follow the livestream. 

Line-up includes:

Andrea Bandelli, CEO Science Gallery International 

Stacie Woolsey, Make Your Own Masters, Science Gallery London

The Science Gallery Summer School from 16-20 July offers a week of interactive and engaging science communication workshops, panel discussions and interactive sessions where a range of young people from across Ireland will meet with leading science communicators and find out more about why being able to talk science is so important. Participants will also have the opportunity to create a unique project and present to members of the Science Gallery Youth Community from Ireland, the UK and elsewhere across the world. 

Participants from all backgrounds and regions of Ireland were encouraged and travel subsidies have been offered to support their involvement.

The Science Gallery Dublin Summer School Programme is delivered in partnership with British Council Ireland and FameLab Ireland and is supported by British Embassy Dublin.
