Event description

Description

This highly creative and exciting engineering show explores some of the amazing scientific discoveries and engineering feats endeavoured by some of our hugely talented Irish Scientists over a period of 350 years.

Designing (probably) the best drinking chocolate in the world, creating a cloud in a bottle, exploring colour changing vegetables, making ice cream in a baggie and sending rockets sky high are just a few of the creative demonstrations that will be used by Sue on her historical scientific journey to fire the spirit of discovery within whilst creating lots of excitement and opportunities to think like a Scientist.

Which gases are explosive and which gas helps to put out fires? Why do we call purple cabbages red? Why do we need to push the bicycle to help young ones learn to ride? Can we make marshmallows grow? Who was the first person to walk on the moon and which Irish Scientists and Engineers helped him to achieve global fame?

With the help of lots of volunteers Scientific Sue will attempt to answer these questions and many, many more.

There will be four show times: 10:15am, 11:30am, 12:45pm, 2:15pm

110 tickets can be pre-booked for each show. There will be 10 additional tickets available on the day on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please book one ticket per person. Children must be accompanied by parents/guardians. Parents/guardians also require a ticket.
