If your little one is always asking questions, that even you struggle to answer, then the Festival of Curiosity is just for them.
Dublin’s annual festival of science and culture is back again, and this year is sure to be just as awe-inspiring and curiosity-igniting as 2013.
From Thursday, 24th – Sunday, 27th July, Dublin will play host to one of the most exciting and innovative festivals of science, culture and curious technology in Europe.
For four days, Dublin City Centre will become a world of science, play and curious technology. Venues all across the city will be holding science shows, curious trails, mysterious creatures and picnics under the stars.The Curiosity Carnival - Dublin's first interactive science playground - will take place at Smock Alley where kids can touch the flowers to hear a symphony, have a chat with the friendly robotic heads, build curious circuits with snappy electronics and create masterpieces with drawing machines that will boggle the mind.
Also on hand to show you a trick or two will be the world famous Mr. Balloonatic, who can bend balloons into mysterious and curious creatures. Bubble maker Zoe Randall will also be there to show off her wizardry of giant bubbles as she defines the law of physics and TOG's giant two metre remote controlled duck that will feature at Dublin Maker over the weekend of the festival.
However, the festival is not just for kids and there will be plenty to ignite the curiosity in adults during the evenings. There will be intriguing performances, debates and shows from Dara O'Briain, Nobel prize winners, Antarctic explorers and much more.
