How will we live in the future?
What will we eat?
Will we run out of flour again?
‘Baking In Space’, the sell-out family event of Science Week Ireland 2018-2020, launches at Cork Discovers for the first time!
Space champion, Dr. Niamh Shaw and Great British Bake Off finalist, Andrew Smyth, will bring you on a journey from Earth to the Moon and back, with demos and bakes directly to your kitchens. Join them as they 'Bake to the Future'!
Lifting off from Earth and headed for the Moon, ‘Baking In Space – Bake to the Future' will explore our planet in lockdown, how we have learned to adapt and the parallels between living in space and living during COVID-19.
With special guests including Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut, representatives from the European Space Agency and a range of Cork researchers, together we will explore the surprising connections between everyday bakes and the extraordinary engineering that helps keep astronauts alive in space.
Packed with live demos, baking, space, scientists, engineering (aerospace/food), psychology and activities for families to do at home, we look to a Future Earth in another exciting space baking show!
'Baking In Space' is suitable for a general family audience, age 8+.
