Although that year may be over a brand new Festival has evolved from the energy and excitement it generated.

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 will transform Dublin’s City Centre into a fun filled curiosity hub for four days in July, 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.
