UCD Science Expression is an exploration of science through a programme of events and projects that include film, art and digital media. We want the public to be better informed about the process of science and not just major science challenges; combining film, art and science allows scientists, researchers and innovators to express ideas in a way that solely explaining science cannot achieve. Our projects will stimulate the public appetite for science through talks, debates and screenings of narrative and documentary films about science, innovation and discovery. Our projects uncover how science impacts on our lives and how scientists think and work.
