Science Week celebrations at Clare County Library

Thirty children attended the Trouble with Titanic Show at Kilkee Library on Thursday last from Kilbaha National School and from the neighbouring Scoil Réalt na Mara, Kilkee. The show which came to Clare County Library, compliments of Science Foundation Ireland, was also hosted by Ennis, Shannon and Kilrush libraries. All four audiences simply loved the workshop that was highly informative using a most interactive and interesting approach as to why the ship sank while also explaining several other scientific principles on the science of floating and sinking. Matthew and James, the facilitators, gave a seamless presentation that included lots of information delivered in an informative but fun way and included lots of participation from the children in the audience. The number of intelligent questions that followed each show was testament to the children’s enjoyment and appreciation of the Science Week event. For an added bonus specially branded Science Week rulers and pencils were gifted to each child who attended. Clare County Library wishes to thank Science Foundation Ireland for another excellent workshop this year.
