FOR RTÉjr SCIENCE ENTERTAINMENT TV SERIES productions are looking for SIBLING PAIRINGS aged between 5 TO 9 YEARS to feature in a new season of our science show LET’S FIND OUT for RTÉjr. 

If chosen for filming, the children will feature together demonstrating a simple science experiment and taking part in a short fun quiz. There will be time beforehand to become familiar with what’s involved. Instructions and support will be provided.

Because of COVID protocols, we are only accepting families living in County Cork. Children must be available to attend for filming at a location in Cork city on one of these days: 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st of May 2021.

A parent must be available to accompany their children at the filming location.

If you have two children within the 5-10 age group, please fill in this form to indicate your interest

Please include a video (approx 3 mins) which includes :

  • Both children introducing themselves e.g. Hi my name is… I’m… years of age and I’m from….“,
  • The children together showing us a favourite simple science experiment (if one sibling is much younger, have the older one show him/her what they are doing)
  • Each child telling us their favourite science fact or their favourite joke!

Please note the children will be filmed separately from the show’s presenters. They won’t be meeting them or going on the set of the spaceship Curiosity!
