Irish science communication competition

An article in today's Irish Times (12 April 2007) highlights an event that sees the seven Irish universities in the Republic go head to head next month in a competition designed to find the ultimate postgraduate science communicator:

The annual Science Speak competition takes place on Thursday May 3rd, in the Royal Dublin Society Concert Hall at 7pm. A panel of judges will hear seven competitors, one from each of the universities who must explain their scientific research in ordinary language and without recourse to technological jargon.


Science Speak is a joint initiative organised by the RDS and The Irish Times in association with Irish Universities Promoting Science. It is sponsored by the Discover Science Engineering programme and by Wyeth Biotech at Grange Castle, Dublin.

Admission to Science Speak is free of charge but places are limited, so it is advisable to book a seat. book online at or by telephone on (01) 240-7217.
