There was great excitement in Clonaslee, Co. Laois earlier this week when Declan Holmes of Science Ireland visited the pupils in the local national school for a full day of science fun, experiments and discovery. These interactive workshops are an ideal way to demonstrate to young children the diversity of science in an interactive and easy to understand way.
Jackie Gorman, CEO of Midlands Science commented
‘Science helps children to answer some really tough questions but delivering exciting workshops like this to schools enables us to make this happens in much more entertaining ways. It is so important for us to try to inspire the youngest of minds and to allow them to see science as something fun and interesting and not something that is too difficult or complicated. We were delighted to kick start our school outreach for 2020 this week and we are now fully booked for the remainder of the year which shows that the appetite for science in schools has really increased in recent times.’
More science education outreach is taking place in Midlands schools in the coming weeks..next stop Westmeath!
