There are over 900 events taking place across Ireland for Science week 2017.
Science Weke is an annual festival of learning and discovery. It provides people around the country with an opportunity to ask questions, explore science in their everyday lives and to find out how science explains the world around us.
This year, members of the public can ask questions on social media about the world around them using the hashtag #StopAndAsk.
Science Foundation Ireland, the organisers of Science Week, and its partners and the science community, will aim to answer the best questions throughout the week.
"Science Week is a brilliant opportunity to explore the world of science and technology that surrounds us all, and is playing an increasing role in our lives," said Dr Ruth Freeman, Director of Strategy and Communications at SFI. She added: "Science helps us to ask and answer the questions, solve the problems and to consider what is next. "This Science Week, we want as many people as possible to get involved and ask the questions that matter to them - the questions that have always made them curious!"
Science Week 2017 runs until next Sunday19th November.
