UCD ENGAGE Science workshop/presentation

Interested in Scientific research?  What’s it like to be a scientist?  

The School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science in conjunction with the School of Chemistry invite prospective students and families to join us for our annual ‘ENGAGE Accessible Science’ competition where our postgraduate students explain their research in plain English. This Wednesday 6th April at 16.00 in the Moore Auditorium, O'Brien Centre for Science, UCD. Suitable for TY, 5th or 6th years.

Come and hear about making plastic from waste cooking oil, designing sensors to monitor the brain and developing new drugs to treat cancer.

These topics and more will be explained in entertaining talks hosted by TV presenter and science communicator, Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin.

In addition there will be an opportunity to view displays and watch demonstrations in our outreach lab, to take a look at the facilities in the O’Brien Centre for Science and to chat informally with some of our current students who are beginning their research careers.
