About Space Week

Space Week is Ireland’s newest national STEM week, in parallel with World Space Week, taking place every first week in October. It is a week where we will ask the people of Ireland to focus on:

Our Planet, Our Space, Our Time

Students, families, community groups and members of the public will come together with the space community, professional astrophysicists, the broader educational community, artists, hobby astronomers and space scientists to use the powers of creativity, critical thinking, science, technology, engineering and maths to focus on the wonders and realities of the Universe around us.

Space Week is brought to you by CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory with the support of Science Foundation Ireland
