Science Communities was an outreach project run by Midlands Science in late 2021 that was funded by Science Foundation Ireland. Through a series of public forums, it provided a way for people to understand the scientific process, explore how evidence is generated and how we can use a scientific mindset to make decisions in our lives. We have taken this series of forums and developed 12 individual videos covering a range of topics including food, mental health, medication, vaccines and health choices. These 12 videos are suitable for TY students, students in senior cycle and members of the general public.
