If outdoor events or sports are not what your children enjoy during the holidays, how about a fun filled science camp. Cork City Council’s Lifetime Lab is home to Anyone4science for science camps this summer, providing hands-on science and engineering activities for primary school aged children.
Over July the camps will provide fun, hands on activities for science campers that will include botany, investigating plastics and recycling, experimenting with levers and pulleys and an introduction to food science. As well as camps aimed at 7 to 12 year olds this year will see the addition of a special 5-8 year old camp for budding little scientists. The camp dates are 12-15 July, 19-22 July, 26-29 July.
Lifetime Lab is located in the old Cork City Waterworks buildings on the Lee Road. The site now contains a Visitor Centre with interactive environmental exhibits, a steam centre with the original boilers and huge steam engines, a schools centre, a coffee dock, a picnic area and a children’s playground and is fully wheelchair accessible.
