The pupils in all our classes were treated to two 40 minute workshops recently as part of an outreach programme entitled ‘Neurons and our Brain’. The programme focused on educating children on what is going on inside our heads, teaching basic biological principles and promoting an interest in medicine and science through activities and a presentation. Neuroscience is a fascinating subject and the UL Medical School Students were keen to spread this passion to the scientists of the future!
A huge thank you to Lucy Dockery of the UL Medical School Paediatric Society for coordinating the visit. A sincere thank you also to all the volunteers (UL medical school students) for taking the time away from their studies to share their expertise with our pupils.
