Munster Maths and Science Family Fair 2022
Cork County Council sponsoring the Munster Maths & Science Fair
Organisers are delighted that Cork County Council, through the Economic Development Fund, will be the main sponsor of this year’s event.
As Chief Executive of Cork County Council, Tim Lucey stated “As one of the many great events the people of Cork could not enjoy due to the Covid pandemic, I am delighted to see the Munster Maths & Science Fair return to North Cork. Cork County Council is steadfast in its commitment to maintaining and enhancing Cork’s achievements as a front-runner in scientific research, education, and manufacturing. The Economic Development Fund (EDF) is available for initiatives like the Munster Maths & Science Family Fair that continue to foster interest in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) subjects to both young and old”.
The event which is scheduled for Sunday 16th October at Mallow GAA Sport Complex, features fun activities which can be enjoyed by all ages and includes interactive demonstrations, science experiments, robotics, 3D visuals, games, and many more exciting displays.
Promotion of the event to primary and secondary schools students and their families is well underway. Both entertaining and educational, the fair’s key aim is to increase awareness of the amazing and wonderful Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) that surrounds our everyday living, work and recreational activities.
“It gives me great pleasure to see Cork County Council through the EDF sowing the seeds of the quest for knowledge in the younger generation. The inspiration it provides can lead its attendees to seek further education and careers in the many educational institutions and industries in Cork that require people with inquisitive minds and qualifications in the fields of STEM. By hosting this event we show Cork’s commitment to not just the patrons attending this fair but also to the industries that might seek to invest here. I wish the organisers the best of luck with the event and I offer them my thanks for their efforts in reinstating this great event post lockdown” stated The Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Danny Collins.
