Cork Science Festival 2015 takes place from 9- 20 November

Now in its 11th year, Cork Science Festival 2015, features a line-up of events in schools across Cork City and County and open days at City Hall from 9-20 November.

This year’s theme ‘Design Your Future’ encourages children of all ages to be inspired and get involved and hands-on in celebrating the fascinating worlds of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).

Cork Science Festival 2015 will also give students of all ages the opportunity to delve into the minds of some of Cork and the world’s ‘leading lights’ in the STEAM industries.

With some of the top pharmaceutical and IT companies in the world having bases in Cork, Cork Science Festival 2015 will give students and parents a fantastic insight into the education and career options on their doorstep here in Cork.

Following last year’s festival success, this year begins with the outreach program touring schools around Cork City and County from November 9-20 bringing STEAM to life in a classroom setting.

They will get to build rockets with Rob Hill from the Northern Ireland Space Office and see the universe in their own school hall with Blackrock CIT Observatory’s StarDome, a portable planetarium.

Tours of Cork ETB’s mimic facility are also on the agenda, here students will get an overview the Life Sciences Sector and of Pharmaceutical manufacturing, while experts will advise on types of employment opportunities in this sector in Cork.

Festival Headquarters, Cork City Hall, will be open to the public on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November from 11am to 5.30pm. These open days aim to showcase the best Cork has to offer in terms of education, research and business.

Speaking on this year’s festival, Marcela Whelan Kelly, Festival Co-ordinator said “The newly rebranded Cork Science Festival 2015 has the most-cutting edge, and local, organisations on board who come up with fun experiments and demonstrations every year, helping to make high-level research and development more accessible for young people.”

Ms Whelan Kelly thanked them for their involvement, “Without their support, the Festival would not be one of the very top science communication events in the country today.”
