More than 600 individual events nationwide have been registered so far as part of Science Week 2012 ‘Everyday Experimenting’, which takes place nationwide from 11th – 18th November. Events are being held in libraries, schools, colleges, universities and other centres across Ireland.
Science Week 2012 ‘Everyday Experimenting’ aims to demonstrate that you are a part of Science. You are constantly experimenting. From attempting a new level on a game, to trialling a new recipe and even embarking on a first date – these are everyday experiments.
‘Abbott Operation Discovery’ is the event that hopes to engage young Longford people in science for the week.
The Operation Discovery science education programme is a unique initiative designed to inspire, thrill and engage secondary-level students through authentic hands-on experiences in science. Teams of Abbott volunteers work with teachers and pupils to facilitate hands-on activities aiming to influence and inspire students to a career in science. The programme is conducted with the support of Abbott’s philanthropic foundation the Abbott Fund and will be visiting over four schools in Longford.
