Louth Library Services Presents Louth Science Festival

Louth Science Festival (LSF) is back! This year we aim to provide a programme of events and workshops seeks to help people understand climate change, how science and technology can help to create a positive environment and use arts and creativity to get our message across. Some of our workshops and events will be specifically for older adults and others will focus on adults with additional needs.

We will look at themes around Biodiversity, Climate Change and Nutrition. With workshops on origami, talks from blacksmiths, podcasting and creative writing there will be something for everyone. 

Supported by Louth County Council and Creative Ireland, (13th – 26th November) is a fun, educational and exciting community festival.

Louth Science Festival 2023 – celebrates, explores and promotes the wonders of science & technology in our everyday lives.

Join us, as we boldly go where no Science Festival has gone before!


Since its inception in 2018 Louth Science Festival (supported by Louth County Council and Science Foundation Ireland) has become a stand-out event in Louth Library Service’s annual programming, providing STEAM activities, workshops, events and talks to audiences around the county.

Louth, according to SFI research, is a low intervention county in terms of STEAM participation. Louth Science Festival, aligning with the SFI Science Week objectives, aims to find different ways of bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths to new and existing audiences, particularly reaching out to those not typically serviced by STEAM programming.

The festival also aims to inspire the community towards STEAM careers, and emphasise the importance of STEM in everyday society, in keeping with the SFI Strategy 2025, focusing on ‘Delivering Today; Preparing for Tomorrow’.

Over the past number of years, LSF has allowed us to build meaningful relationships with local organisations and community groups, including Louth County Council and Dundalk Institute of Technology (DKIT), as well as local schools, nursing homes and Youthreach Centres. It’s our aim to grow and develop these connections, and build new ones as the festival develops.
