Surface Tension, The Future of Water @ScienceGallery

How good of an exhibition is Surface Tension – The future of Water ?

I went there Friday [28 oct]. I stayed for 2 hours. I returned there the following day with my daughter. I stayed for two hours. In short. I love it. Highly recommended. A must see. Genius.


What’s funny is that I couldn’t help thinking how if a non-techie head was introduced to this exhibition [?] first as versus SCIENCE…. The wonder of the mind might just could only make them consider pressing the square root button on the calculator to figure out why it happens.

To that, what you realise is, it is the people of the Science Gallery combined with such mind-blowing, well thought and planned gigs that make, yet again, this exhibition so amazing.

On a side note the word exhibition bores me and most green lecture sermons can be repetitively boring. They may be factually correct – but – to really make people think and in the aftermath, far more importantly to have an impact, do they ? Usually not because it is usually the expert talking to the experts about a specific field.

This however is the experts guided by more experts telling the public allowing you and I figure out for ourselves why water is so precious. And for this, Science Gallery deserves a standing ovation.

My advice, if you do go there ?

This isn’t a pipe and slippers exhibition. This is funky geekery at its finest. When you walk in the door ask one of the lovely people who work there to talk you through it. They will. That’s what they are there for. This, is particularly important for when you get upstairs.

If you have never been to the Science Gallery before, the coffee shop does really great coffee and the gift shop is the best I know in Ireland. This is not a compliment – this is a fact. You might also be interested to know that the exhibition is free in but you can make a donation if you wish.

To the staff at the Science Gallery who took the time to talk to me, thank you.
