SEARCH giant Google has donated €1m to Trinity College’s science gallery.
Since it opened in 2008, the gallery has welcomed over 800,000 visitors to a range of exhibitions ranging from the future of fashion to contagion.
The money will be used to develop a global science gallery network designed to engage young people in the science, technology, engineering and maths.
“By offering this transformational support, Google is helping to take Science Gallery to the next level and allow it to scale its impact internationally,” said Dr Michael John Gorman, Founding Director of Trinity’s science gallery.
“We’re planning eight Science Gallery hubs around the world by 2020, developed in partnership with leading universities in key cities such as London and Moscow.
“In each city, we tap into a vibrant local creative community of researchers, designers, artists and entrepreneurs to engage and inspire the next generation of innovators.”
