Titan made its debut appearance at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition in 2006 and was an immediate hit with young and old alike, drawing huge audiences to the BT Arena. Titan is transported around the Arena on a docking station driven by the Man in Black. After some adjustments to the controls, the Man in Black 'fires up' the equipment and brings Titan to life - much to the shock of the audience around! This performance is not to be missed .

'The Science of Cookery' - While cookery has always been a science, the application of physics and chemistry is gaining more and more importance in the world of chefs. The most well-known and awarded chefs of today lean heavily on science to bring innovation to their dishes - creating unusual sauces, emulsions and foams, experimenting with the use of savoury ingredients in desserts and sweet ingredients in mains, and also simply examining the exact conditions to cook meat to perfection. There has even been a scientific discipline named: 'molecular gastronomy', defined as the application of scientific principles to the understanding and improvement of small-scale food preparation. Understanding the chemistry of flavour, the denaturing of food and the structure of food molecules all contribute to the success of a food business (tasty food)). Why add salt to water? Why can't I taste food when I have a cold? Why does roast chicken smell so good? The answer lies in the chemistry and science of cookery. Visit 'The Science of Cookery' by Failte Ireland to see a range of experiments and demonstrations, taking place throughout the day. These will include the work of organaleptic receptors (the role of smell in taste), the work of enzymes and the science of ice-cream. Failte Ireland is the National Tourist Development Authority - the government agency that provides support to develop and sustain Ireland as a high quality tourist destination. Part of Failte Ireland's responsibility within this remit is to help ensure that there are enough motivated, skilled people entering the tourist industry to meet its staff needs.

Stand 15, A sound understanding of Planet Earth - how it was formed and how it works - helps to improve peoples' lives. The study of Planet Earth is known as Geology. It mainly involves the study of rocks, as well as making maps of what lies beneath the ground. Geology impacts on our lives in many ways: it helps us understand climate change and how to protect the water that we drink. Our homes are normally made from concrete and stone and are heated by oil or gas, turf or coal; the roads and bridges we travel on are made from concrete, stone and tar and the jewellery we wear contains gemstones for sparkle and beauty! All of these are the natural resources of Planet Earth. This exhibit attempts to show the importance and relevance of geology and geologists, what Planet Earth is all about, how it can be protected and how it impacts on YOU! It includes a rock display, a seismometer that shows how earthquakes are detected and measured, schools competitions and much, much more.
