Event Description

This workshop which was facilitated by Dr Trish Murphy was designed to encourage young people to become interested in a career in science. This is addressing the EU’s Horizon 2020 goals & addressing the shortage of science careers in the EU, especially for women. Dr Murphy demonstrated and carried out simple experiments which the children could take part in. These also were connected to everyday life and showed the children how important science is to all kinds of everyday occurrences. The children and adults present were extremely interested in these entertaining, interactive workshops & they joined in enthusiastically. The workshop stimulated and encouraged the children to follow a future career in science. This workshop took place during Science Week and 32 adults & children attended.
