RTE's Late Late Show viewers were not only treated to an interesting interview with comedian Dara O'Briain, who spoke about science. He also conducted an experiment entitled 'Methane Mamba' with Sarah Hayes, SSPC's Education and Outreach Officer. Himself and the show's host, Ryan Tubridy, filled a bucket full of liquid nitrogen, then adding water created an eruption of a massive cloud!! This was a great start to Science Week and many fantastic shows and images have followed.
Science Week is supported by Science Foundation Ireland, who have made great efforts to bring science-related events to the general public in a fun and engaging way across the nation.
Diane Cusack captured the image below that featured in The Irish Examiner, aptly capturing the magic of Cork Science open day with Dr Sarah Hayes who put on a fantastic Science Magic Show.
