Science on Stage Ireland

Ireland has been participating in Science on Stage/Physics on Stage and bringing teams of Irish science teachers to the biennial European festivals since Physics on Stage 1 in November 2000.

Science on Stage Ireland supports teachers from across Ireland in getting involved with the opportunities the Science on Stage network provides, building links to their European counterparts.

Every two years Science on Stage Ireland launches a national call to identify and select primary or post-primary teachers that will represent Ireland at European Science on Stage festivals. Ireland Science on Stage teachers are actively involved in disseminating STEM teaching ideas at national teacher’s conferences and general public events.

Science on Stage Ireland is organised by CASTeL at Dublin City University and supported by the Institute of Physics in Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme. For any further information or to get involved in this project in Ireland, please email  

Science on Stage Ireland is committed to the national dissemination of teaching ideas and demonstrations that are presented by the hundreds of European science teachers at European Science on Stage festivals. A series of books from these festivals has been produced to share teaching ideas and demonstrations from Physics on Stage and Science on Stage festivals since 2002.

Printed copies of these books have been distributed to Irish science teachers and all resources are freely available on our website. These books have proven to be an invaluable and much sought after resource by both teachers and parents.

The collection of Science on Stage Ireland books of demonstrations and teaching ideas can be downloaded in pdf format from


Since 2012, the Irish Science on Stage teacher have recorded and launched video resources of teaching ideas collected at Science on Stage Festivals.
