Trinity College Dublin,
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.
OPEN MIND Studios are week-long programmes for Transition Year students which aim to highlight the rich network of interconnections between science, the arts, culture, design, business and innovation.
These programmes give students the opportunity to develop 21st Century skills - creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. The workshop sessions also offer the opportunity for students to interact with leading researchers, entrepreneurs and creative individuals and get an insight into the exciting career possibilities in these fields.
If you will be in Transition Year in 2019/20 you can apply for a place. There are six OPEN MIND Studio weeks in Term 1 and six in Term 2.
