Fantastic DNA School Roadshow
 

Pupils:

  • I loved when the cell EXPLORERS came to our school because we never get to do experiments

     and it was really funny working in groups.

  • You did a great job and I want you to come back next year!

  • It changed my view on science because it was really fun!

 

 

Teachers:

  • The information was pitched at their level and the children were immediately engaged and interested.

  • There was a perfect balance between theory and practical work. The session was highly organised with an instructor for every small group.

  • I loved how each group had their own helper. This meant that each group were kept focused at all times and had guided assistance if and when needed. Session was hands-on! Children love to be involved

  • It was very practical and an interesting topic for the children. The fact that they could go home with an actual DNA sample was very exciting for the kids. The session was very well organised and the demonstrators were great with the group

“Little Cells” school visits for primary school Junior Cycle

 

Teachers:

  • It was something different - caught the children's attention.

  • The balance between presentation and activity was good. Demonstrators were well prepared and interacted well with children. Demonstrators worked well as a team.

  • I found the material to be very child friendly and very at their level. The pupils were very attentive and interested in the material. They had never learned anything about cells before.

  • The number of presenters kept the session interesting and children enjoyed learning abut cells and making the cells.

  • The pupils really benefitted from it. It was very clear, concise, child friendly and it was presented to them in different ways and they really kept their attention span. I would definitely recommend Little Cells. It worked very well with this small group as the facilitators were able to work with small groups and this helped the children get a better understanding of it
