Science, technology and research have critical value in addressing the economic, social and environmental problems that we see facing the world today. This needs the support of an engaged public which appreciates the importance of science, encourages young people (our future leaders), to take science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects, and has the appropriate level of engagement with, and influence upon, the researchers.
Here at Tyndall, we’re excited about what we do. We are a leading European research centre in deep-tech innovation - cutting-edge and disruptive technologies that are based on scientific discoveries. We specialise in both electronics and photonics (the science of light).
Our Education and Public Engagement activities programme aim to:
We support a vibrant outreach programme to show students the diverse opportunities across physics, electronics, photonics, materials and chemistry. We visit schools, participate in festivals and public events, and host Transition Year programmes. An snapshot of our work can be found in the primary / secondary and events for general public tabs of this section.
