Last month, at a sold-out TEDxDublin, five people took to the Science Gallery stage to entertain and inspire us with ideas worth spreading. In four very different talks, we heard about everything from glow-in-the-dark zebrafish to youth computer clubs. Just in case you didn't catch the event, we've uploaded a video of each of the four talks to the official TEDx channel. Check them out below...
