The Space Zone was a themed engineering zone supported by Science Foundation Ireland. In this zone were:
- Stephen O’Connor, the winner in the zone, who tests different materials to find out if they can be used to build satellites.
- Sita Karki, a Computational Scientist who works with satellite images to study the environment.
- Rory Scarrott uses satellites to look at the oceans, their surface structure and how it changes.
- Hannah Currivan, who designs electronics to go on satellites.
- Brian O’Connor studies satellite images and other maps to see how nature is disappearing.
- Alison Dufresne, a Space Propulsion Engineer who designs and builds rocket engines.
