Electric Picnic marks the end of the Irish summer. Some say its too late and summer is already over by the time it happens due to the amount of rain that typically lands on the festival. We were invited by the Science Gallery to run two different workshops over the course of the festival. We ran a locking picking session and a field test of the conductivity of liquids.
Over the two days festival goers were entertain by being handcuffed to each other and left to pick their way out and with the kids being amazed to find out distilled water does not conduct electricity. Check out our gallery for the full photo set.
