Munster Maths and Science Family Fair

The Dairygold stand at the Munster Maths and Science family Fair in 2017.

Mallow Development Partnership is delighted to announce that it will host the eighth annual Munster Maths and Science Family Fair, on Sunday, 14th October, from 11.30am to 4.30pm, in Mallow GAA Complex in Carrigoon. With nearly 5,000 attendees in 2017, this huge S.T.E.M. fair is now well established as a beacon event for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (S.T.E.M.), and an extension of the Mallow Maths and Science Schools Primary School Project to learn about S.T.E.M. and to create awareness of how it envelops our daily lives.
Thirteen schools from the Mallow, Buttevant and Doneraile areas will once again be showcasing their projects alongside the professionals and giants, some of which include the ever-popular Physics Busking, Blackrock Castle Observatory, Lifetime Labs, Blizzard Entertainment, the Maths Week crew, C.I.T., and U.C.C., together with local icons such as Dairygold, Kostal and EPS Group.
The fair is geared towards all ages, and attendees will enjoy a wide range of fun and interactive exhibits and demonstrations. It also provides a valuable opportunity to discuss with the professionals their careers working as an engineer, scientist, researcher, etc. as well as their paths to achieve their professions.
So…. enjoy and test 3-D exhibits, surround yourself with stars in the Planetarium Dome, solve riddles, test your gaming skills, unlock giant puzzles, create musical straws, windmills, rockets, and have lots of fun with so many more hands-on science experiments and demonstrations.

The event is organised by Mallow Development Partnership, and the main sponsors of the event are the Economic Development Fund of Cork County Council and the Irish American Partnership.
