Cell Explorers and WiSTEM UCC

26 Apr 2024

As part of on-campus activities to promote diversity, inclusion and WiSTEM opportunities, Dr Eoin Fleming (Schools of Biochemistry and Cell Biology/ Pharmacy) was joined by Dr Collette Hand  (Department of Pathology) and students from the Colleges of SEFS and Medicine and Health, in delivering the FANTASTIC DNA workshop to primary school students from North Presentation and Togher Girls National Schools. During the workshops the children got to experience the fun of doing hands-on experiments and learnt about the huge variety of careers you can have in the Life and Health Sciences.

Cell Explorers, which was established with support from the SFI-Discover Programme, were joined by the very competent committee members of WiSTEM-UCC to organise and run the event. For their enthusiasm, engagement and brilliant demonstrating, sincere thanks to students Katie O’Flynn, Sinéad Murphy, Ruth Horan, Sarah Cooper, Gráinne Egan, Gemma Ryan, Rachel O’Sullivan, Lorna Fortune, Gráinne Spillane, Laura McCormick, Leah Murphy, Jack Mullen and Lauryn O’Callaghan and to Jenny Duane for assistance in preparing samples.
