Due to COVID-19, we have stopped visiting schools in-person.
Since October 2020, we have adapted our activities to run remotely online.

We will return to delivering visits in-person once the COVID-19 restrictions have ended and it has been deemed safe to do so! This is under consideration for 2022.
Get in touch with one of our teams!
Our activities are taking place online using the "Fantastic DNA in a Box classroom kit". We will distribute a limited quantity of kits through Science festivals in 2021 and 2022. Teachers/schools interested in using the kit can also contact us directly. As the demand might exceed our capacity to produce the kits during the current COVID-19 restrictions, interested teachers who have requested a kit will be put on a waiting list until we have kits available.
To request the Fantastic DNA in a box kit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org using "Fantastic DNA in a box kit request" in the subject of your email. Include your school roll number and your mobile number to facilitate the communication. You can also directly contact a team closer to your location, see below.
If you contact email@example.com, we might identify the team closest to your location. Delivery/collection methods differ according to Cell EXPLORERS teams and your proximity to a given team location. Your chosen CE team will be in contact.
Book a Cell EXPLORERS visit for your school with one of our 13 different teams across Ireland.
To contact a team click on the envelope symbol beside the team logo (or scroll down to see their email addresses).
Please contact the team closest to your school location (see our teams).
Your school will be added to our team waiting list (Don't forget to give us your roll number!) and we will let you know when we can visit you!
In the event we cannot visit you this term, we will do everything we can to visit you either later in the year, or during term 1 of the next year.
