Science Week 2020 School Workshops!

The SOPHia project is offering two online workshops for schools during Science Week 2020, as part of the Limerick Festival of Science. The SOPHia project aims to encourage more students to take physics as a subject, especially girls, and to improve student perceptions of physics. The SOPHia project is a partnership between the University of Limerick, IT Carlow and Tait House Community Organisation, and is funded by Science Foundation Ireland.
