Blast off for new stars of science.
ALL mad scientists out there, get ready to put your inventing hats on - it's science week.
Discover Science and Engineering want to make science fun with more than 400 events across the country running until Sunday.
Well, this trio certainly looked out of this world as they dressed up as a crazy inventor, a Star Wars stormtrooper and an astronaut. Programme director Peter Brabazon said: "If Ireland is to reach its goal of becoming a smart economy we have to capture the imagination of young people and open up the opportunities available to them in the worlds of science, engineering and ICT.
"Events for schoolchildren and families are run by volunteers across the country so we would encourage everyone to log on to www.scienceweek.ie and see what events are on in their locality.
"The opportunity to witness a moment of magic could lead to a lifetime of innovation."
Thousands of children are expected to attend events in Limerick, Waterford, Sligo, Galway and Cork.
