Cell EXPLORERS at the Big Day Out

We were delighted to be a part of the SFI Science Zone at the St. Patrick's Festival Big Day Out in Merrion Square this year! Last Sunday Cell EXPLORERS ran the two hands on science workshop tents at this event. One marquee ran Little Cells workshops for younger children and the other ran the Fantastic DNA session for older children. We had an amazing team of Cell EXPLORERS volunteers on the day, including two members of the Cell EXPLORERS Athlone IT team, Emma and Andrew. Thank you to everyone who came to our workshops, to the St. Patrick's Festival organisers for having us, and to the amazing St. Patrick's Festival Big Day Out volunteers who also helped us throughout the day.

St Patrick Festival - Cell EXPLORERS & Kitchen Chemistry are going to the Big Day Out!

Two NUI Galway Outreach programmes from the College of Science have been invited to take part in the BIG DAY OUT organised by the St Patrick Festival on the 20th of March. We are delighted to be one of these programmes! Next Sunday from 12 noon to 6pm, Merrion Square will be transformed "for this exciting day-long carnival, bursting with energy, colour and whimsical antics". It will be an opportunity for families to engage in exciting experiences and cool learning activities, including with Science! The SFI Science Zone will let budding young scientists experiment hands on science. Perfect! That's what we know best! We will run a double marquee with two interactice workshops: "Little Cells"

The doctorate will consider the role of higher education institutions as an outreach provider of science to formal education, and best practice in this regard. The candidate will be based in the College of Science and integrated within the Cell EXPLORERS outreach programme team in the School of Natural Sciences. This project is a joint project between the School of Education and the School of Natural Sciences (SNS) at the National University of Ireland Galway.
