Fota Wildlife Park launch the return of educational activity weekends across the summer
Fota Wildlife Park have announced the return of their family-friendly educational weekends, which feature a variety of fun interactive experiences and learning-focused stands and activities on various weekends this July and August.
Visitors to Fota Wildlife Park are invited to visit the themed educational events, which are free with entry, including the Mad Scientist Weekend on the 16th and 17th July, the Native Species Weekend on the 30th and 31st of July and the Bug Bonanza which runs on the 13th and 14th of August.
Lynda McSweeney, Head of Education at Fota Wildlife Park, said:
“I am delighted to welcome back our popular public engagement events such as our Mad Scientist Weekend. These events provide an opportunity to highlight the importance of both biodiversity and the role of STEM in our everyday lives! Of course, hosting these events wouldn’t be possible without the assistance of my colleagues in several organisations including both UCC and The Lifetime Lab. Our partners have been instrumental in assisting Fota Wildlife Park in promoting science and the wonders of nature to visitors of all ages and we look forward to engaging with the public over the course of the summer and sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge with them!”
