‘Under the Microscope’ in Laois!

We were delighted to provide microscope kits to Timahoe NS in Laois this year as part of our Midlands Science Festival activities. This is a result of a partnership with the Microscopy Society of Ireland.

The microscopy kit contains 8 microscopes, a digital camera, and all educational materials (worksheets, teacher notes) needed for 6 pre-designed activities. The kit is essentially a lab in a box and provides a platform from which to explore biological and materials science through engaging team-based educational activities. It fosters inherent interest in, and love of, science and the scientific method, and exploration of unknown worlds.

Jackie Gorman, CEO of Midlands Science said,

‘We were delighted to provide the Royal Microscopical Society’s (RMS) Microscope Activity Kits to Timahoe NS as part of the Midlands Science Festival and we hope that the students have found it to be a fun, science learning experience.’
