A new science initiative started up in Óg-Ógras Gaelscoil Dara last week. Three students from the National University of Ireland, Galway, who are studying biology will be spending some time with the club and working with our young people to ignite in them an interest in science.
This initiative is part of the CKI Initiative in the University of Irelan, Galway and students are working with various community groups all over Galway to make science more attractive to young people.
This is the first time that such a project has been made available through Irish and Ógras are overjoyed that the first session, on Wednesday last, was extremely successful.
Every session will see an opportunity for Óg-Ógras members to undertake an experiment and have fun - they'll even have the chance to work with DNA and see it under the microscope!
The initiative will continue until mid-March and members of Óg-Ógras will visit the university and the laboratories there.
We wish the initiative every success and are truly grateful for the partnership between Ógras and the CKI Initiative at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
