This year’s Science Week might be a little different than other years, but that hasn’t stopped iCRAG from getting stuck in. The theme is “Choosing our Future” which resonates deeply with iCRAG and our research on Resources for a Sustainable Future. Over the course of Science Week, 8-15 Nov, iCRAG researchers will be involved in a number of different events virtually across the country. These include:
- Monday 9th Nov: series six of 10 Things to Know About returns to RTE1 TV at 8.30pm with Dr Fergus McAuliffe contributing on the "Weird Science" slot.
- Tuesday 10th Nov: two primary school workshops by Dr Anthea Lacchia and Dr Chris Mark virtually streamed to schools in Co. Kildare.
- Wednesday 11th Nov: pre-recorded workshops on the geological adventures of the Brown Bull of Cooley in County Louth as part of the Louth Science Festival and led by Dr Jess Franklin and Elspeth Wallace.
- Saturday 14th Nov: a participatory live discussion on the role of resources in our future for the Rediscovery Centre’s Let’s Talk Science Festival available to the whole country, and led by Elspeth Wallace, Dr Danny Hnatyshin and Helen Twigg.
That’s not all – iCRAG will also have a strong presence on social media where we’ll be sharing facts and interesting information about our research along the “Choosing our Future” theme, so keep your eyes peeled. iCRAG is looking forward to taking part in the SFI Science Week 2020, for more information about all of the events ongoing over Science Week across the country, check out the SFI website here.
