Event Description

There is evidence of skills shortages in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) fields in spite of high unemployment rates in many EU Member States.  The EU has identified a priority for the closing of this skills gap by encouraging more young people to study these subjects and take up careers in related industries.

This Science of Dragons show is specifically geared towards the promotion of science to children and is based on the books written and illustrated by Cressida Cowell called, ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. This show illustrates that Cressida is not only a fantastic author but also a ‘secret scientist’, who sets out to instill an enthusiasm and love of science in her audience.
