Making science more fun for schoolchildren.
In this news2day report from 2003, Dara explains how science is
all about rockets and hot air balloons and fingerprints.
He is interviewed at a Forfás event in Drumcondra Teacher Training College, aimed at making science more fun for schoolchildren. Local students enthusiastically conduct experiments and demonstrate their results. One experiment shows a rocket going from one end of a string to the other, which Dara says happens for "the same reason as a rocket going from Earth to the moon". And when you get older, "you can blow up bigger things".
