Science Week on RTÉ is back with a full range of engaging science-themed content for people of all ages, across all platforms from Sunday 11th November.

The centre-piece of Science Week on RTÉ will be Growing Up, Live, an exciting new, live, television series, presented by Angela Scanlon, which looks at the extraordinary development of humans from birth to death, from infancy to old age in front of a live studio audience representing a cross section of Ireland’s age population.

Assisting Angela are the Growing Up Live resident science siblings, Deirdre and Ruairí Robertson, who will be treating the audience to live science experiments over the course of three consecutive nights - 13th, 14th and 15th November.

Produced by Loose Horse for RTÉ and supported by Science Foundation Ireland, Growing Up, Live will unlock our understanding of a human lifetime live from the amazing the Anatomy building in Trinity College, Dublin.

RTÉ Radio 1’s, Ray Darcy Show will continue its fascination with science by partnering with the series over the three days, and seeking to better understand human bodies and their transformations across our lifetime.

Other Science Week on RTÉ highlights:

  • Online, rte.ie/scienceweek will have a mix of support material, videos and specially-commissioned long-reads from RTÉ Brainstorm.
  • On RTÉjr - Let’s Find Out, Rocketeers, Kiva Can Do, Wild Kids and Wonder What all showing across the week, while Brain Freeze, Insiders and DeTECHtives will all feature on TRTÉ and RTÉ2.
  • Popular science magazine series, Ten Things To Know About returns to RTÉ One to start a new run on Monday 12th November.
  • Also on RTÉ One: JP Holland is a documentary that looks at the life and work of the Liscannor-born engineer who developed the first military submarine; Bittersweet is a short documentary about diabetes directed by Hugh Rodgers, Anna Rodgers and Zlata Filipovic as part of the Science on Screen scheme run by CURAM; Thinking Outside The Box : Schrodinger in Ireland is a half-hour documentary presented by Professor Luke O’Neill that looks at the Austrian physicist’s time in Dublin on the anniversary of his seminal  lecture, ‘What Is Life’, and the impact that presentation had on genetic and DNA studies.
  • RTÉ’s Science and Technology correspondent, Will Goodbody, will mark Science Week with a series of special reports across television, radio and online.
