During the Family Science Week showcase event at MTU Kerry North Campus over the weekend, several attendees were captured having a great time. Domnick Walsh captured photos of Aliyah Bruse and Rebekah Landy enjoying themselves at the event, as well as 10-year-old Eoin McMillan getting into the scientific spirit.
Muireann Hussey from Mercy Mounthawk in Tralee was also photographed testing the skin of Daithi Nolan at the event, which was part of National Science Week. Sisters August Culhane and Sheeryn Culhane were also seen at the event, along with six-year-old Keelan Wren, Aidan Nkomo, and Jayden Duma enjoying the VR experience.
The showcase event included a wide variety of activities such as VR experiences, scientific testing, robotics, weather forecasting, electric vehicle display, sustainable food making, zoology, book reading and children’s sustainable recycling workshop. Organizers described it as a fantastic day of free entertainment that sparked wonder in the children’s eyes at the range of activities available to them.
