Calmast is South East Technological University’s STEM Engagement Hub. It was established in 2002 to address issues in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) building on work of the South East Schools Science Initiative commenced in the 1990’s. The centre leverages the resources of SETU (in particular the staff, students and venues) and works in partnership with schools, industry and business, local authorities, public bodies and non-governmental organisations. Calmast has been funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) as the STEM Hub for the South East Region.
The core value is “STEM for all” and we work in a spirit of partnership in all things to engage as many as possible. In 2018 over 20,000 attended Calmast coordinated events in the region and hundreds of thousands engaged with Maths Week Ireland.
The Centre directors are Dr Sheila Donegan and Eoin Gill.
South East Technological University is a university located in the South-East of Ireland
