Today we were delighted to welcome RNLI volunteer Ronan Adams (who is originally from Tullamore) back to the Midlands to talk to four schools about the work of the RNLI, water safety, how the crew save lives and of course how science plays a role in all of this highly important work.
The children even had an opportunity to test whether or not Ronan was telling the truth when he said his uniform was completely waterproof! (See photo)
We also had a brilliant day of workshops all about the grand canal which runs through Tullamore and this was provided to a very lucky local school by waterways Ireland and the Irish Peat Conservation Council.
Later on its the science of perfume, loads of careers talks and some experts into the science of sleep! Its not over yet!
