Carrigaline Children To Star In RTÉjr Science Series
Updated: Nov 12, 2021
Children from the Carrigaline area were chosen to star in episodes of Let’s Find Out, the Irish-produced science TV series for children, supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
The show starts airing on RTÉjr and on the RTÉ’s streamer RTÉ Player from November 8th - just in time for this year’s Science Week.
Because of Covid19 related restrictions last summer, the producers of the show decided to only select siblings for filming and wanted them all to be from the same county. Cork got the vote.
Two children from Carrigaline were selected; sisters Zoe and Amy O'Mahony. The children prepared their own science experiment and took part in a fun quiz.
The children’s scenes were all filmed at the Waterworks Experience in Cork city. Mary Murphy of stop.watch productions says: “We were so lucky to be able to use the fantastic facilities at the Cork Waterworks - including the museum and playground. We transformed part of the centre into the show’s “Brain Power Station”. This is the place where children take part in what we call the Brain Power Challenge quiz to send brain fuel back up to the spaceship.”
