Under the Microscope

 

Under the Microscope will host a series of interactive workstations that will introduce children to microscopes and their uses in discovering the world around us. Children can use magnifying glasses and microscopes to investigate and identify a variety of everyday items commonly found in our homes, gardens and schools. Under the microscope is supported by both the Microscopy Society of Ireland, the Royal Microscopical Society and Anatomy, School of Medicine in NUI Galway.  

Eco EXPLORERS

 

Join us and discover the fascinating world of bugs, reptiles and other creepy-crawlies! Eco EXPLORERS is a science outreach initiative created by Dr Michel Dugon from the NUI Galway Discipline of Zoology. In this workshop, Michel will introduce children to important concepts such as biodiversity, animal conservation and ecology using live exotic animals.

 

Cell EXPLORERS

 

With Cell EXPLORERS you will find out about the amazing world of cells, which are found in all living things. You will learn about the important cell instruction book, the DNA and you will use lab equipment to extract fruit DNA in a fun experiment!
