In 2008, a forgotten corner of Trinity College Dublin was transformed into a living experiment called Science Gallery Dublin. Through a cutting-edge programme that ignites creativity and discovery where science and art collide, Science Gallery Dublin encourages young people to learn through their interests.
Since its opening, more than three million visitors to the nonprofit gallery have experienced 43 unique exhibitions, ranging from design and violence to light and love, and from contagion and biomimicry to the futures of the human species and play. Science Gallery Dublin develops an ever-changing programme of exhibitions and events fuelled by the expertise of scientists, researchers, students, artists, designers, inventors, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs. The focus is on providing programmes and experiences that allow visitors to participate and facilitate social connections, always providing an element of surprise.
Science Gallery Dublin is part of the Global Science Gallery Network pioneered by Trinity College Dublin. See more about the Network here.
The TY Programme is a fantastic way for young people to connect with the themes explored through our exhibitions and collaborations with artists, scientists and innovators. Throughout the week, 20 students explore current and future exhibitions as well as working collaboratively to develop projects and create content. Through interactive skills workshops, students have the opportunity to explore design, art and scientific practices, as well as the chance to meet with leading researchers, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs, granting them a unique TY experience.
The programme will run on 10 occasions spread throughout the school year, with 20 students from different schools nationwide participating in each week.
