Taking science out of the labs and onto Dublin's streets

For a week in September, Dubliners will have the opportunity to experience many aspects of science in a huge array of formats and contexts. Debates and displays, readings and drama, walks and talks, exhibitions and entertainments, are all part of the Science in the City programme that runs from Sunday, 4 September for a week, as part of the BA Festival of Science.

One such event taking place is an exciting print exhibition entitled Lifeforms: Images inspired by Darwin.  Included in this exhibition will be work from 2nd year Visual Communications students from DIT.

 The winning entry

The students work is based on their interpretation of Darwin's quote 'the planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed laws of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved'.

Date:   05 September - 09 September
Venue:   National Museum of National History, Merrion Street, Dublin 2
Cost:   Free, no ticket required

All are welcome!
