Young Kerry Scientists Dazzled by MTU Family Science Week Showcase


Nov 20, 2023

Over the weekend, the MTU Kerry North Campus hosted a Family Science Week showcase event that drew in many attendees. Photographer Domnick Walsh captured Aliyah Bruse and Rebekah Landy having a great time at the event, along with 10-year-old Eoin McMillan getting into the scientific spirit. Daithi Nolan was another attendee pictured enjoying himself, as was Keely Flaherty and Lily Walsh who were photographed with the Nutty Scientist, Robert Cooke.

TY student Muireann Hussey from Mercy Mounthawk in Tralee was captured testing the skin of Daithi Nolan at the showcase event, which was a part of National Science Week. Sisters August Culhane and Sheeryn Culhane were also photographed at the event, and six-year-old Keelan Wren, Aidan Nkomo, and Jayden Duma were captured enjoying the VR experience.

The showcase event included a wide variety of activities such as VR experiences, scientific testing, robotics, weather forecasting, electric vehicle display, sustainable food making, zoology, book reading, children’s sustainable recycling workshop, slime experiments and much more. Organizers described it as a fantastic day of free entertainment and noted the wonder in children’s eyes at the range of activities available to them.

This busy weekend at MTU’s North Campus in Tralee also included other events such as sports competitions and cultural performances. Check out our photo gallery above for more snapshots from the event.
