Cork Science Festival


Maria and her students had a stand for Cork Science Week (13th to the 20th of November). They were speaking with the public about fossil colour! The exhibition below is at University College Cork.

In the video below, Maria explains (as Gaeilge) how we study colour in fossils animals (click to open Vimeo link).

Cork Science Exhibition was also held in Blackpool, where members of our research team (along with various undergraduate and postgraduate volunteers) spoke about insects and dinosaurs!


We hosted a new exhibit at the 2015 Cork Science Festival – ‘Walk like a Dinosaur’. Visitors put on wellies bearing dinosaur ‘feet’ and walked along a paper trackway, before their stride and leg length was measured. Visitors were also able to touch real fossils at the exhibit. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped man the stand!
