Schools & Educators Programme Revealed

This year our Schools and Educators programme will be headlined by none other than European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake!

Joining Tim this year is RTE's Mark Langtry (aka Mark The Science Guy!), a Rapper's Guide to the Solar System with NISF favourite Jon Chase and the award-winning materials scientist and engineer Anna Ploszajski as she talks to pupils about the nail-biting story and surprising science behind swimming the English Channel!

The Festival is delighted to be in partnership with Nerve Centre, Creggan Country Park, Armagh Planetarium, Belfast Zoo, Ulster University, Queen's University and so many more in delivery of this year's Schools programme.
