The wonderfully named ‘Festival of Curiosity‘ kicks off today in Dublin, with events all round the city, featuring some well known names such as Dara O’Briain and Jocelyn Bell Burnell and a whole lot of Lego! Full details are below:
2012 saw a unique yearlong celebration of science in Dublin as over 600, 000 people took part in Dublin City of Science 2012 celebrations. Although that year may be over a brand new Festival has evolved from the energy and excitement it generated. The inaugural Festival of Curiosity, Dublin’s annual Festival of Science and Culture, was officially opened today and will run from 25-28 July. The Festival will provide new opportunities for adults, families and children to come together and experience a hands on adventure in science, play and curious technology.
THE FESTIVAL OF CURIOSITY, Dublin’s first annual festival of science & culture, will transform Dublin’s City Centre into a fun filled curiosity hub for four days, with free day-time events for families & children, accompanied by an evening programme of interactive science debates, discussions and shows that will intrigue and challenge the most curious of minds.
