Event Description

Primary schoolchildren will have the opportunity to experience a day in life of a cancer researcher, to meet cancer researchers, and to do simple lab experiments. The format will involve watching a short video created specifically for this age group, after which students will be invited to don lab coats and do fun supervised science experiments. Participants will receive a workbook to record details of their experiments, and can take it home to complete some science-related puzzles, pictures and quizzes.

The event will take place in 2-hour blocks, with each block able to accommodate 20 students (preferably 6th class). The blocks will run from 9.30-11.30, 12.00-2.00, 2.30-4.30.

Advance booking is ESSENTIAL….to register your class, please email annhopkins@rcsi.ie by Fri Oct 14th.
