A free experience for afterschool groups at the Awakening Curiosity exhibition
In celebration of Dublin City of Science 2012
Monday 14 May - Friday 22 June
3.30pm–4.30pm (tour only, no workshop. Note that we can offer some flexibility around the time. Please contact our box office staff for details)
For the first time, The Ark is delighted to offer an experience for afterschool groups who can come in and have a facilitated tour of the exhibition for free, thanks to support that has become available for this programme through our key funders.
Awakening Curiosity has been specially commissioned by The Ark to ignite children’s interest in art and science. A facilitated tour will take afterschool groups on an explorative journey through the exhibition, learning how science and biodiversity inspired the work on display. Discover floating nests built with materials scavenged from the city, see a suspended shoal of recycled metal fish, and investigate textile sculptures of coral, plankton and Irish marine life. Groups will also create their own species of butterfly in our digital painting installation and will meet some mischievous animatronic creatures who will react to the slightest movements.
Maximum group size 30 per tour
Advance booking is essential, contact our box office staff on 01 670 7788 or email@example.com for information.
