BDI E&O TEAM FEATURED IN INDEPENDENT SUPPLEMENT

05.11



The Education & Outreach team was recently featured in the Independent's second "Science for Life" supplement, answering questions on a variety of questions such as "How does sun scream work?" and "Is there a cure for the common cold?".

The BDI's Clare Scalzo and Dr. Aoife MacCormac, along with scientists from Universities and Institutes all over Ireland answered questions posed by students from Primary and Secondary schools around the country. Questions ranged from topics as broad as New Media and Food Chemistry.

Science for Life, a special Irish Independent supplement published in association with the Higher Education Authority (HEA), featured a series of articles highlighting the relevance of science to everyday life.

The supplement pages featuring questions answered by Aoife and Clare can be found here and here.
