Lismore Mobile Scientists at West Waterford Festival of Food - April 2015
- Published: Friday, 28 March 2014 11:39
Lismore Heritage Centre’s Mobile Science Team is adding some snap, crackle and pop (not to mention some whizz, fizz and bang!) to this year’s West Waterford Festival of Food.
On Saturday 11 April our mobile scientists invite budding Einsteins to join them in St Joseph’s Primary School, Dungarvan for a morning of food-inspired science fun.
The younger kids are up first with 5-8 year olds taking over the countertops with Kitchen Sink Science. From 10-11am, boys and girls can discover the amazing potential stored in the most ordinary of kitchen cupboards! With a second session from 11:15am - 12:15pm.
One session of C.S.I will be held on 12 April, at 12:30pm and at 1.30pm. Suspect everyone in this 1hr forensic science workshop. Children will deduce, decide and discover the secrets and tricks of a real life C.S.I.
Warning: Try this at home!
Our message at Lismore Heritage Centre is clear: science doesn’t belong in a laboratory; it’s all around us. We encourage children to try these experiments at home; science with Lismore Heritage Centre has been known to inspire some very messy imitations!
A place at one of the West Waterford Festival of Food sessions costs €5 per child. Spaces are strictly limited so early booking is advised. Places can be booked online here.
Lismore Heritage Centre is a Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) Centre with over 15 years education experience. Thousands of children have explored Lismore on their school tour. In recent years our Mobile Science Team has taken to the road travelling to schools in Waterford, Cork, Tipperary, Wexford and Limerick bringing science from the birthplace of Robert Boyle to primary school students in their very own classroom.
