The Centre for the Advancement of Learning of Maths, Science and Technology was established in 2003 at the South East Technological University (SETU). It draws on staff, students and resources from SETU to achieve the vital National goal of promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
They also work with many National and international groups, including Waterford City and County Council, industry groups, festivals and events and schools to develop the Southeast, with Waterford as it’s Gateway City as a Science region. Calmast also founded and coordinates Maths Week Ireland, the largest festival of its kind in Ireland.
Calmast has been an integral part of Spraoi for many years, and this year you can find them in Cathedral Sq. on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, offering you the chance to take part in many workshops, demonstrations and activities.
