Our beautiful bright purple and orange logo has been designed for us by Michelle Campion when she was a Master student at NUi Galway. In addition of being a scientist, Michelle is also a very generous person and a talented artist - check her facebook page and her website! Thanks Michelle we really love our logo! She recently created an Album featuring our use of this logo. Some of it is reproduce below - you can also check it here. "During my Masters in NUIG (2013-14) I creat
Doing experiments with liquid nitrogen, turning 2 cent coins gold and sliver, extracting DNA and learning all about exotic animals - our young participants at the Scientist For a Day workshop learned all about what it is like to be a scientist in the laboratories of NUI Galway! Run as a collaboration between Kitchen Chemistry, Cell EXPLORERS and Eco EXPLORERS, the one day workshop on February 16th gave an opportunity for children to come on campus, into one of the universitie
A team of 18 young scientists joined us for 3 saturdays of practicing experiments in the Biochemistry lab for the second term of NUI Galway Youth Academy. With our team, led by Ivor, our young guests found out how our bodies work and discovered the amazing world of cells, which are found in all living things. They looked at their own cells under the microscope, learn about different types of cells and use the scientific method to investigate what happens inside cells! Our tea

The International FameLab Science Communication competition has arrived in Galway this year! The Galway Regional Heat during which 10 participants competed for two places in the Ireland final took place on the 9th of February 2016. The ten scientists came from a variety of backgrounds, from a professor of mathematics to a researcher in medical device design, all from NUi Galway with 4 of them being current or past Cell EXPLORERS team members. The competing scientists were giv
Clare, One of our volunteer team members, has been taking fantastic DNA to the primary school where she was a pupil few year ago, Scoil Chaitríona in Renmore. The visit was led by team Leader Charlotte, and Clare was accompanied by BingLing, Melissa and Dylan and the team saw both 5th and 6th classes. We are always delighted when these very special visits happen and You can understand why by reading Clare's summary of the visit in our testimonial page here.
Cell EXPLORERS, Kitchen Chemistry and Eco-EXPLORERS are teaming up again to run another Scientist for a Day midterm workshop this Tuesday, February 16th. The workshop involves a full day of science-related activities for children aged 7 to 13 years old. It includes activities such as preparing DNA, observing colourful chemical reactions and working with live exotic animals. You can find out all the details about Scientist for a Day by clicking here.
