We Are All Scientists Exhibition goes live for Science Week 2019

Reckon you've got what it takes to become a scientist?

You don't need to have been born wearing a lab coat to become a scientist. As long as you've got the right mindset, you're pretty much halfway there.

As part of this year's Science Week, a pop-up exhibition called "We Are All Scientists" is the place to find out if you've got what it takes. According to organisers Pfizer & Science Gallery Dublin, it comes down to five key characteristics:

  1. Curiosity
  2. Creativity
  3. Clarity
  4. Discernment
  5. Resilience

There will be unique experiments set up to test you in each of those characteristics. From building a duck out of Lego to examining strands of DNA through a microscope, it's about as hands-on as it gets!

Taking place in the CHQ Building until Sunday, 17 November, this is Science Gallery’s first pop-up exhibition in the community. Developed in partnership with Pfizer specifically for Science Week 2019 and welcomed by Science Foundation Ireland, the aim is to get people of all ages to start thinking differently about science.

While some may think science simply isn't for them, Pfizer's research shows that 92% of parents surveyed either have or would encourage their children to study science/computer science. Even though it's something that there is a major push for, only around one in 10 actually work in a STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) related profession.

The Pfizer and Science Gallery pop-up exhibition has been thoughtfully designed to resonate with people of all ages and whether you have a science background or not. Why not check out the exhibition this weekend, it’s free and you will have more in common with scientists than what you might think!

The #WeAreAllScientists Pop-up Exhibition created by Pfizer and Science Gallery has opened in the CHQ Building for Science Week. Upon entering the space, visitors will engage in five creative experiments to see if they possess the key characteristics of a scientist. These exhibition activations explore Curiosity, Creativity, Clarity, Discernment and Resilience, and aim to highlight the challenges involved in scientific research and discovery.
