Secondary School Scientists Invited to Science Week 2010 at Lismore Heritage Centre

What was Robert Boyle? An accident prone Earl's son, an alchemist, a chemist, a physicist and an inventor. A founding member of the world's oldest scientific academy and a pioneer in the study of gases whose name is enshrined in chemistry textbooks across the globe.

In association with Science Week 2010 Lismore Heritage Centre invites secondary school classes to learn about the life and works of Ireland’s most famous scientist through an interactive presentation. Boyle's most famous experiments will be recreated by Eoin Gill of CALMAST, the Centre for the Advancement of Learning of Maths, Science and Technology at Waterford IT.

Mr Gill's presentation takes place on Thursday 11th November at 12.30pm as part of Science Week 2010. Science Week is a nationwide event designed to promote the relevance of science, engineering and technology in our everyday lives and to demonstrate the importance of these disciplines to the future development of Irish society and to the economy.

This is strictly a schools only event. Admission is free but booking is essential. To reserve a place for your class please contact Alice on 058-54975.
