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, created by Dr. Niamh Shaw and Andrew Smyth, has grown from a single Science Week event in Dublin back in 2018 to a nationwide tour in 2020!
British Council are thrilled to be co-producers of the show, alongside our funding partners Yakult and Science Foundation Ireland. With local Irish researchers and special guests from the European Space Agency, together we take the time each year to explore the surprising connections between everyday bakes and the extraordinary engineering that helps keep astronauts alive in space.
With lots of live demonstrations, tasting and audience interaction, your curiosity will be whisked, stirred, and taken out of this world…
