Event description
Celebrate World Refugee Day with Cell EXPLORERS and their fantastic DNA experiment at home via Zoom

About this event

As part of World Refugee Day Celebrations this year, NUI Galway's University of Sanctuary initiative, the Galway Traveller Movement, the Galway BRIDGE project, Walk the Talk Galway and Cell Explorers will come together to celebrate a day of events to show solidarity with those seeking international protection around the word.

One of the events, called "Fantastic DNA at Home", explores DNA, the instruction book found in cells that make up all living things! Work like a modern biologist and extract DNA from cells from home with both scientific small equipment and everyday life items.

Children will work with the support of their parents and the Cell EXPLORERS team!

Participants prepare DNA from banana cells assisted by scientist explainers during a secure zoom meeting. The activity will be run in small breakout rooms and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to the scientists present. The Cell Explorers online code of behaviour will apply during all sessions.

There will be two live sessions on the day:

2:00pm-3:00pm

3:30pm-4:30pm

You can choose which suits you best, and please only sign up once per household. Please see the video below for how to sign up, and sign up if you're interested :)
