Discovery Science Festival 2010, Cork

It was a pleasure to help out with the Discovery 2010 Science Exhibition at City Hall, Cork for a few days. (2008 Video) The energy and enthusiasm was amazing. I met serial volunteers, community wardens for the council, pharmachemical researchers, sciences educators, software and mechanical engineers and researchers around Cork and Ireland, et al. I also met bundles of children who were trying out all the gadgets, devices, slime-making schemes, liquid nitrogen ice-cream, molecule-building, force-field twiddling, sound-wave crashing, sensor-music-playing, energy-bulb-generating, robot toy and circuit-board constructing... The future's bright I'm sure, despite this week's economic calamities. Up in Dublin, The Global Forum is wrapping up. - Twitter @CorkDiscovery
