#CnMnSc – the first #Cavan #Monaghan Science Week takes place!

img_20161127_164931Congratulations to the Library teams in Counties Cavan and Monaghan for the first iteration of Cavan-Monaghan Science Festival, held last  week to coincide with Science Week Ireland. (Is this an example of Glocalisation?)
I loved the lectures on climate change, focusng on water and soil, in the library on Wednesday evening. The family day on Saturday was terrific – the small people I know (and quite a few adults also) had a great day panning for ‘gold’, programming robots of all sizes, making their own binary code bracelets, and producing a giant bubble machine with a slider control. A special ‘well done’ to the students and teachers of Scoil Mhuire, Lacken, who brought their STEAM room resources and shared them with all comers.
Hopefully this will be an annual event, and will grow and grow.
