A national STEM education initiative to promote the awareness and engagement of the Irish public with STEM

Physics Busking is a national STEM education initiative based on the traditional mode of street busking (street entertainment). This programme involves recruiting and equipping buskers with the necessary skills and knowledge to engage with the general public at national fairs/shows, etc. using interactive STEM experiments and demonstrations. The concept of Physics Busking was established in Ireland in 2005 by the Irish Science on Stage team through a collaboration between CASTeL and the Institute of Physics in Ireland.
