Venue: Auditorium, National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin
Free entry, Booking essential as places are limited
Come and join scientist-astronaut candidate Norah Patten, author of Shooting for the Stars (The O’Brien Press) and explore the cosmos through space travel, learn all about astronauts and prepare for your very own space mission! With Norah on course to become Ireland’s first astronaut, she will teach you everything you need to know, from space suits to rocket launches. Join in the fun, as you design your very own mission patch and prepare everything you need for your journey to the stars.
As our events are free of charge, we do tend to have no-shows on the day. If you are interested in attending on the day and we can accommodate you we will endeavour to do so.
Norah Patten was 11 years of age when she visited NASA on a family trip to the United States. From that moment on she was hooked on all things space. Norah has given talks at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition and helped to launch the Children’s Books Ireland Bold Girls campaign. She regularly appears on TV and radio. Shooting for the Stars, illustrated by Jennifer Farley, is Norah’s first book.
