About the event
ESB Science Bast, delivered by the RDS, is a non-competitive programme for primary school classes from 3rd – 6th (ROI) and Key Stage 2 (NI) that invites children to investigate the science behind a simple question that interests and excites them.
The goal is to ignite children’s innate curiosity about the world around them and aims to promote curiosity, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking in children at primary school age to enable them to better respond to the challenges of the future.
Participating schools exhibit their work at showcase events in Dublin, Limerick and Belfast, where they receive feedback from the team of expert judges and participate in science themed workshops and shows.
The inaugural 2019 ESB Science Blast saw 496 projects submitted from schools from across Munster, Connacht, Leinster and Ulster. All participating schools got the opportunity to showcase their projects and take part in exciting science-based workshops.
