Who better than Boole to explain what it is like 'Being Boole'?
There are many experts on George Boole, but who better than the man himself to bring the past to life and transport us to 1849 to guide us through the history of UCC and his own relationship with the college. Who better than Boole to explain what it is like 'Being Boole'?
Hear Boole explain why he came to Cork, talk about his time here and his impact on not only the university but also on the worldwide scientific community.
The tour involves a visit to the beautiful Boole stained-glass window in UCC's Aula Maxima, the Ogam Stone Corridor and the wonderful Honan Chapel. Our journey through Boole's legacy will come to an end at the newly-refurbished Crawford Observatory, which will be open to the public for the very first time.
Everyone taking the tour will receive a Boole map that will help you locate Boole's house in Grenville Place, and also receive a discount voucher for George Boole merchandise.
Tours will be delivered in English and last approximately 70 minutes.
Tours will run each Friday at 3pm and Saturday at 12 noon and will come to a close on 30 September 2016.
