The Science Fair took place in the IT Sligo today. It was fairly quiet when we were there and I hope more people arrived later on. It seemed to be very poorly advertised, usually there is a timetable of the day on the IT Sligo website and in the local newspapers this year there was only a brief mention of today although the rest of the events during the week got more of a mention.
The dancing looked like great fun and we got to some science experiments. We also got to see Alaska the bald eagle from Eagles Flying.
The Sligo Leitrim Mountain Rescue team were demonstrating how they would get a casualty down from the mountain, the little boy was very happy to act injured.
The Army bomb disposal unit where there showing people how they do their job. I still get worried when I see soldiers with guns, I’m always worried I’m going to trip up and land on one of them.
We got to see Michael and Molly from Nature Learn with this whale rib!
Nature Learn call out to schools and teach the children all about wildlife and all things nature. Michael is passionate about his profession and it is wonderful to hear him talk.
We had a lovely day and I’m looking forward to the birdwatching taking place on Wednesday at 1pm meeting at the fish in the grounds of the IT Sligo.
The rest of my photos are here.
