Cork Carnival of Science 2023


The Cork Carnival of Science 2023 took place on the 10th and 11th of June at Fitzgeralds Park in Cork City. The festival featured lots of different events including garden games, street cuisine and a packed line-up of live demonstrations, big top shows, hands-on workshops and entertainment. Over the weekend the festival had over 20,000 visitors.

Our exhibit, Ireland’s Fossil Heritage, showed off some of our most popular interactive games and activities, such as the Fossil ID game, Fossil Crime Scene, Fossil Trackway experiment and our new Fossil Hunt video game, plus lots of real fossils from Ireland and around the world!

The organiser of the Cork Carnival of Science Mervyn Horgan says, “The fossil marquee is always one of the most popular, the hands-on element you have developed always grabs attention.”
