The Arty Scientist 2016
Run on exhibition day of the Galway Science & Technology Festival 2016, this Art workshop was designed to bust the myth of the mad Scientist and to open the mind of children on how scientists look like!
Children drew a life-size representation of themselves as scientists with the help of both scientists and artists.
During the workshop, children could take inspiration from pictures representing the diversity of NUI Galway Scientists. They had an opportunity to discuss the different types of scientists and the diversity of the work they do, how they can dress for work, their gender, age or nationality, before imagining themselves as the scientist they could be.
