Join RTÉ Junior’s Dale Treadwell for his dinosaur show and see the reptiles that used to roam the earth.

Fully immerse yourself with the 360* Dome Cinema visuals and surround sound as you are transported through time and space in an amazing experience that has to be seen to be believed.

Visit the Community Food Initiative folks to find out more about nutrition and sample some tasty and healthy snacks.

Come to the Energy Hub, to meet Ballyhoura Staff, who share will share their knowledge about how to reduce energy consumption in your home and tackle the rising cost of living.

Alongside all of this, The Professor, Konor Halpin, will be doing messy science experiment shows throughout the day, where you’re guaranteed to get your hands dirty.
