During the Family Science Week showcase event at MTU Kerry North Campus over the weekend, several people were photographed having a great time. Among them were Aliyah Bruse and Rebekah Landy, who were captured in a photo by Domnick Walsh enjoying themselves at the event. Ten-year-old Eoin McMillan was also photographed getting into the scientific spirit, while Daithi Nolan was another attendee who was pictured enjoying himself. Keely Flaherty and Lily Walsh were seen with the Nutty Scientist, Robert Cooke.
TY student Muireann Hussey from Mercy Mounthawk in Tralee was captured testing the skin of Daithi Nolan at the showcase event, which was a part of National Science Week. Sisters August Culhane and Sheeryn Culhane were also photographed at the event, and six-year-olds Keelan Wren, Aidan Nkomo, and Jayden Duma were captured enjoying the VR experience.
The showcase event at MTU Kerry North Campus included a wide variety of activities, including VR experiences, scientific testing, robotics, weather forecasting, electric vehicle display, sustainable food making, zoology, book reading, children’s sustainable recycling workshop, slime experiments and much more. Organizers described it as a fantastic day of free entertainment that left children in wonderment at the range of activities available to them.
