We are delighted to be teaming up with the county libraries in the Midlands again this year to deliver a range of events during Science Week 2019 and it was great to see their programme of events in Offaly County Library, Tullamore, this morning when we were dropping off some branded merchandise.
Martina Needham, Offaly County Library said,
“We are delighted to partner with the Midlands Science Festival team once again for 2019 to provide as many high-quality outreach events as possible during Science Week. It is so important that we continue to work towards our goal of increasing the number of pupils, teachers and parents coming into our libraries and collaborating with a local company whose key aim is to promote science education is an ideal way of doing so. In Tullamore, we are particularly looking forward to Foodoppi, an exciting, fast-paced science & food show which gives audiences an opportunity to see food become experiments you can eat. We are also co-hosting an event on November 15th which will explore what we now know about various types of cancer, their causes and cures. Dr Robert O’Connor, Head of Research with the Irish Cancer Society and Dr Craig Slattery of UCD will also look at how citizens and patients can become more fully informed. Don’t forget to check www.midlandsscience.ie for event details and booking and join us this November for a range of hands- on, interactive events in Offaly county libraries.’
