Space Week 2017 Comes to Lismore


We would like to thank all the astronauts and their parents who participated in a great Space Workshop on Saturday 7th October. World Space Week occurs each year from the 4th -10th October and Space Week Ireland hold a multitude of national events.

Our Space Week Workshop was lots of fun as we explored the Solar System, Stars, vacuums and of course, rockets! The theme of this year’s Space Week was “Exploring new worlds in our time” and we hope we inspired some of the participants to further their interest in Space and exploration.


We run a number of S.T.E.M. workshops during the year and they are usually suitable for children aged between 6 and 11 years. If you would like to be notified of upcoming workshops, follow us on Facebook or phone 076-1102157 to be kept in the loop. Lismore Heritage Centre is a Discover Primary Science and Maths Centre.
