Crucible's Full Steam Ahead

Want to get the inside track with the people leading the field? Crucibles are a group of individuals from all walks of life that are working closely together to interact, create and push the boundaries in communicating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) to all that will listen!

Join Crucibles for a full day of events hosted at Science Gallery Dublin as part of Inspirefest 2015.

First up is “Health Hack”, a series aiming to save 3 million lives by looking at the problems and solutions of smoking. During the second half of the day join "Full Steam Ahead", a series of short talks from poker playing and tartan tales, to digital revolutions and changing the face of technology. Feel free to join one or both events.


The second section of the day will be held upstairs in the Science Gallery Dublin's Paccar Theatre and will be opened with Margie McCarthy of Science Foundation Ireland.
