Department of Applied Science Joins National Cell EXPLORERS Network

A team of lecturers and technical staff from the Department of Applied Science has trained to join the Cell EXPLORERS national network. Cell EXPLORERS is a science education and outreach programme based in the School of Natural Sciences in the National University of Ireland, Galway. It works on a unique model where volunteers and student projects combine to allow sustainable outreach. 


The aim is to promote hands-on discovery of molecular and cellular biology. To date the LIT team has worked on the Fantastic DNA Roadshow and the team has visited schools in Limerick City and near Ennis. The hands-on workshop introduces the topic of DNA and the school children extract DNA from bananas and build models of DNA to help them learn about this amazing topic.


The project is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The NUIG co-ordinators have provided a range of equipment and resources and we are hoping to recruit student volunteers to join our staff volunteers in the Autumn semester. The LIT team co-ordinators are Siobhan Curtin and Marie Walsh.
