Chris McCreery, Director at the NI Science Festival, said: “Our biggest focus is to make science accessible to people of all ages and experience. The festival showcases researchers who are driving forces in their fields of research and celebrates the contribution of Northern Ireland’s leading minds to the worlds of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“Alongside these is a brim-full programme showcasing the weird and wonderful too. Science can be fascinating, amusing, entertaining and thought-provoking. Science can be inspiring too, and this is what we hope to achieve through our programme of events in the Newry area.”

For the first time this year, the NI Science Festival has partnered with pioneering ticketing platform Citizen Ticket to securely manage all online bookings. Citizen Ticket has developed its own blockchain network in order to combat issues such as ticket touting and fraud.

NI Science Festival is supported by the Department for the Economy, Belfast City Council, Tourism Northern Ireland, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Queen's University Belfast, Ulster University, Innovate UK, British Council Northern Ireland, Matrix and STEM recruitment specialists MCS Group.
