About Cell EXPLORERS:

The Cell EXPLORERS programme (www.cellexplorerscom) is based on a volunteering model where science students and employees from 10 Higher Education Institutions give their time to spread their love of science with children. The programme objectives are to inform, inspire and involve the children in modern biology and biomedical sciences.

To find out more about Cell EXPLORERS activities and the ‘Fantastic DNA’ roadshow, visit www.cellexplorers.com or follow Cell EXPLORERS on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

The NUI Galway Cell EXPLORERS team, and the expansion of the programme to other institutions, is funded by Science Foundation Ireland under its Discover Programme, the NUI Galway School of Natural Sciences and the NUI Galway Foundation.
