International Women's Day

Space Speaker in your Classroom

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Mean Scoil Mhuire engaged with the “Space Speaker in your Classroom” activity. This involved using Skype to contact the Science Facilitator, Danielle Wilcox from Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork. This initiative was used to showcase women working in the Space Science field.

Danielle spoke to the students about how she became involved in space science and about the diverse opportunities that are available through a career in the Space field. Danielle also brought Astronomy to life by showing the students a planetarium show. This was followed by a question and answer session which was very informative and really involved the students. This proved to be a very successful and informative talk on Space Science and the celebration of women in science.

This event was made doubly successful due to the fact that the speaker was speaking live from Cork to 120 of our students in the gym.
