State allocates €2.8m for STEM public engagement

Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover programme has awarded €2.8 million to 42 projects that engage the Irish public in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Announced on 21 January, the initiatives will help the government deliver on its promise to give Ireland the “most engaged and scientifically informed public” in the world.

The projects are for a mix of public engagement and education projects, with initiatives spread out across the state. The goal is to increase the percentage of people who feel informed about STEM from 49 per cent at present to 60 per cent over the coming years, the government says.
