Discovery Science Festival

Many thanks to all the dedicated and enthusiastic student members of the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences at UCC who kindly volunteered their time to host the ‘Prehistoric Colours’ exhibit at the Discovery Science Festival at City Hall, Cork from the 16th to the 19th of November 2013. Approximately 3,000 members of the public – children, teachers and adults alike – visited the festival and had a chance to meet Microraptor and a whole host of other colourful fossils and insects ‘in the flesh’, as well as take part in a fossil hunt and play our fossilisation video game!
