💧 Catch what you can | 1pm Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun | 4pm Thurs
Our oceans are packed with beautiful fish and marine life. Unfortunately, because of us, they have to share their wonderful world with a load of old rubbish these days. Any idea what that rubbish could be? If you could catch some and get rid of it, could you? Time’s running out…will you catch what you can and save the day?
💧 Build a Bridge and Get Over it! | 2pm Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun
A Lego workshop with a structural challenge invites you to look forward and step into the future of how we can get from one place to another. If you were asked to design a new footbridge for the River Foyle what would it look like? How would you build it? Exhibits will be judged by Fergal the LegenDerry Shark!
💧 From City to Sea | 3pm Wed – Sun
Fergal will take everyone through some daily routines of his and show the significant role that water plays in many of those tasks. But not all is well, swimming upstream to the city, his perfect cousin Kevin has lost his way and is now stuck in a rut. Can you help Fergal find Kevin and keep the system running smoothly?

Journeying through the sea, we face the challenges and forces of nature, the weather, the environment – they all test us to our limits.
