The Rediscovery Centre is an accredited Discover Primary Science and Maths centre offering interactive and experiential workshops for primary, secondary, and third-level which cover wide-ranging environmental and STEM topics. The centre’s translational research activities support national waste prevention and climate action policy and advocate for a more resilient and equitable society. 

Fantastic event venue and meeting space

The Centre is based in the repurposed Boiler House in Ballymun which was developed as a prototype ‘3D textbook’ a new concept in experiential learning and the first of its kind in Europe. The centre demonstrates best practice building design, construction and operation and defines the building and environs as an educational tool to effect positive behavioural change with respect to resource management and efficiency. It, therefore, offers a fantastic and unique event venue and meeting space.
