TY students (December 2019)

In collaboration with the SSPC education and public engagement program, the department of biological sciences hosted transition year students from across Limerick for biology practical’s this week. 
We made the practical’s personal with the students growing microbes from their hands overnight and measuring each other’s hearts rates before and after ‘jumping for science’. 
We also showed them the diversity of organisms in sea shore samples and introduced them to how we determine disease in horses using molecular biology.

Thanks are due to Patricia Cusack, Tara Murphy, Ian Coughlan, Andrew McGovern and all our dedicated Technical team.
