Lismore’s Mobile Scientists come to your school from the birthplace of Robert Boyle and have almost 20 years of experience in the education sector. Our Secondary School Mobile Science workshops are tailored for junior, transition year and senior cycles. We broadly cover a topic, introducing many ideas and we let your student’s inquisition do the rest. Broadly based on the curriculum we blend all the strands of Science where possible to give students an experience of applying Science to real life in a positive, fun environment. Content is expanded or relaxed depending on the cycle and ability we are dealing with.
Take a trip down the digestive system with our interactive experiments, launch yourselves into space and learn all about the Solar System or solve an age old murder mystery as a group of Crime Scene Investigators.
