RTÉjr is looking for children to join their new science show.
Many of our children will perform jobs that have not even been invented yet. STEM education - the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics - has never been more important.
But recent research revealed that children as young as ten are making decisions about their future careers without ever having been exposed to STEM subjects.
A new RTÉjr science show for the under-8s will introduce young children to science in a fun and entertaining way.
