Yesterday saw the second Scientist for a Day workshop run in NUI Galway with 40 young budding scientists enjoying a taste of life in the lab! Scientist for a Day is a collaborative initiative between Kitchen Chemistry, Cell EXPLORERS and Eco-EXPLORERS. During the workshop children do some fun chemistry experiments, extract DNA from banana cells and get up close to exotic animals such as tarantulas, millipedes and snakes! The first workshop was run during mid term break last O
Our team is made up of over 100 wonderful volunteers who give their time to share the wonders of science with children. You can find out about what activities we got up to last year and read about what it is like to be a volunteer with Cell EXPLORERS by checking out our Volunteer Newsletter from December 2014.
New month, new start! Last week, at the end of January, was the official announcement of all the projects nationwide that will be funded by SFI Discover this year, and Cell EXPLORERS is one of them! With a 2 year award we have been funded to keep Cell EXPLORERS active mostly around Science week and expand our activities nationally. ReelLifeScience is also in there with us and will be run nationally again next year. Thanks SFI and thank you very very much to the Cell EXPLORERS
