EPIC Explorers Women In Space

DATE: 9 October

WHERE: Virtual
COST: €5

It’s time to climb aboard your rocket and venture out into the galaxy in this Space Week special where we discover the influence of Irish women in space travel.

Suitable for ages 6 – 12 years old, meet Irish astronauts such as Eileen Collins, the first female pilot and commander of a space shuttle and astrophysist Jocelyn Bell Burnell, whose discovery of a new type of star won a Nobel Prize.

Then see if you have what it takes to follow in their footsteps by taking part in our interactive space camp – a series of fun sensory and drawing activities designed to let you experience life in space without stepping foot outside your home!

Delivered via Zoom, participants will need crayons and paper to take part. Important: All children must be under a parent/ guardian’s supervision for the duration of the workshop. This session will be delivered remotely via Zoom. Please do not journey to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum for this workshop.”
