Rounding up some Junior Einsteins and Words of Wisdom on Science Careers

scoil mhuire je 3Wednesday’s agenda was action packed again with a whole range of different science activities and events on offer across the region. We kicked off the day by welcoming back our friends from the Junior Einstein Science Club to Scoil Mhuire in Tullamore (photo)before heading to Athlone where a lucky group of students got to visit the fire station and learn all about the science of firefighting and the equipment involved in making it all happen.

We then enjoyed some informative careers talk from Women in Technology’s Laura Tobin and also from NUI, Maynooth’s Biology expert, Dr. Sean Doyle who visited Athlone Community College today.

It was down to Tubberclair next where Sustainable Energy Ireland delivered more workshops, this time for primary level and we also enjoyed some more solar weather fun today with TCD. The pupils of Killeagh NS enjoyed some fun and exciting activities provided by the Geological Survey of Ireland! We finished off the day in Longford where we held a public event all around ‘The science of heart health’ in association with Abbott Ireland and the Irish Heart Foundation.
