Astropark have conducted some excellent research from former customers to help provide a greater customer experience for both the children and the parents. The camps are great for parents working from home as they have now changed the start time to 9 am. The camps do not focus on one specific sport to avoid the children feeling bored. Instead, they offer a wide range of fun and entertainment throughout the camp week.

Their birthday party options include Bubble Football, Soccer Party, NERF AstroWars, GAA Party and Inflatable Bouncy Castle Party.

Dublin Locations – Northside (Coolock-Santry) phone 018060088, Southside (Tallaght) phone 01 4599822. Both are just minutes from the M50, so they are easily accessible. For enquiries and prices relating to either of their locations, please email info@astropark.ie or visit www.astropark.ie.

Make Music Summer Music Camps
Make Music return with a bang this summer with a series of week-long music camps designed for students who can already play an instrument, but who don’t have the opportunity to play with others. After all, that’s where the real fun in music lies!

Over the course of the week, camp goers will be introduced to other musicians and split into groups to form a band. You’ll have constant support and instruction from experienced gigging musicians while you learn to play some cover songs together. You’ll have song writing classes to help you write some original material and you’ll perform your cover songs and compositions live at the end of the week!

We’ll intersperse all the playing and rehearsals with talks on aspects of music playing, like song writing (as mentioned), how to use pedals and effects and how to set up your equipment for optimal sound in a live set.

We’ll have some fun rhythm and harmony studies and hands-on demos of how to layer tracks and fuse genres. We’ll even have some Q & A sessions with professional musicians and a visit from a third level institution, to show you some options for doing a degree in contemporary music.

This promises to be the best camp of the summer. So get up off your couch, grab your guitar, pop your sticks in your jacket and start limbering up your voice. Call us on 086 178 9859 or 087 951 3653 and book your place now! www.makemusic.ie

Everything they do at Junior Einsteins Science Club is because they are passionate about bringing STEM to young children in a fun filled high energy way. They inspire them to use their imaginations, make a mess, explore and discover. They do this through fantastic interactive experiments from Slimy Slime where children learn about long chain polymerisation and Non-Newtonian fluids. A Barbie Doll gets a hair raising experience on a Van Der Graaf generator while children learn about voltage and current. Lighting a light sabre with a plasma ball they learn how electricity flows! They inspire their ‘Junior Einsteins to explore a broad range of STEM subjects learning by doing; Fossil making, Forensics, Arctic Animal Adaptations, Classification of Life, Rocket Races, Bug Hunts, Illusions and how cartoons are made, Geology and Volcanoes, Bernoulli’s effect and how planes fly, marine biology, quantum physics using Nerf guns.

Learning through tons of fun!

Children wear Lab coats and goggles! LOTS of OUTDOOR Fun! They teach children ‘How to Think, not What to think ‘, best preparing them for our ever changing world. They hope their ‘Junior Einsteins’ will build  their love of Science in Primary School and choose science as a subject in secondary school and on to third level. The world needs more children through Science Parties, After-School Science Clubs, Science Workshops & Science Shows, Science Hallowe’en, Easter & Summer Camps, Science Corporate Events, and Science Family Events & Festivals.
