The Joy of Knowledge comes to Ballymun: Ballymun Science Fest!

28th October 2016

Do you crave knowledge (and coffee)? Do the kids like to play with bubbles? Do you like the sound of the Exploration Dome?

If so, great news! The team from Global action plan is collaborating with the Rediscovery Centre for Science Week. Together they are bringing all things Science to the Ballymun Civic Centre on Saturday the 19th of November, between 11-4pm.

For our budding scientists, engineers and tech enthusiasts – keep their hands busy and their minds challenged with impressive dry ice experiments, bubble chemistry and model building for the Coastal Defence!

The Exploration Dome, a mobile planetarium to excite our bold astronomers in the making, challenging problem solving tasks with ADAPT, sustainable energy themed games with SEAI, and face painting are just a snapshot of what this free event has to offer.

And with a feature demonstration of sustainable agriculture from Teagasc the Let’s Talk Science #BallymunScienceFestival is a day out not to be missed!
