Submitted on Saturday, 20/05/2023

The Cork Carnival of Science will take place again this year at Fitzgerald Park, Cork City, 10 – 11 June 2023. It promises non-stop, family-friendly experiments, interactive activities, garden games, street cuisine and a packed line-up of live demonstrations, big top shows, hands on workshops and entertainment.

Come and join Insight researchers who will be demonstrating some of the principles of computer science in a way that is accessible and fun for primary school-aged children through the use of paper-based puzzles and games in the spirit of the CS-Unplugged initiative.

The fun coding game Cubetto will also be on show to demonstrate how the basic principles of coding can be instilled in children in a fun and interactive way without the use of a computer.

On Saturday only, researchers will demonstrate the simple description of biomechanics of walking and human activity monitoring using wearable sensors  plus making a ramp walking toy to explain the mechanics of walking.

On Sunday, researchers will showcase the artificial intelligence tool called DALL-E which is an AI system that creates realistic images and art from a textual description.

Date: 10 & 11 June 2023

Location: Discovery Drive, Fitzgerald Park, Cork City

Time: 11.00-17.00
