Created in 2010, this pioneering FREE exhibition is now one of the highlights of the calendar year for many genres by attracting circa 5,000 fun-loving attendees of all ages and growing year on year.
With over FIFTY exhibits the wide range of INTERACTIVE displays include robotics, 3D visuals and simulations, gaming platforms, communications technology, microscopic exploration and even a ‘planetarium experience to visit the stars’, amongst many more fun and educational demonstrations at the HUGE Mallow GAA Sports Complex.
A team of fun enthusiasts are also on site to take you through messy experiments and interesting demonstrations of science laws, which are shown through simple but amusing games such as tug-of-war, giant windbags, musical straws, windmills and many more fun techniques!
Selected exhibitors include national and global industry giants, mixing with renowned research & third level institutions, all showcasing their latest STEM wares alongside local pupils from North Cork schools who display their own imaginative and creative projects.
Both entertaining and educational, the fair’s key aim is to increase awareness of the amazing and wonderful Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) that surrounds our everyday living, work and recreational activities.
Through meeting the professionals at this delightfully fun event, people are encouraged to embrace the core STEM subjects which can be pathways to stimulating and rewarding careers.
It’s free and it’s fun for all ages... so don’t miss it!
