From the horse’s mouth

Yesterday I was able to get out and into a school in Dublin to do some direct communication to the kids there. I genuinely do like doing this kind of direct outreach as while the Musings and AAB can reach vast numbers of people, there really is noting to match direct interactions with people and be able to talk to them and engage in real conversations and discussions. It’s certainly nice when you can see you have piqued an interest and get some great questions.

I was hosted by Humphrey Jones who runs the superb ‘Frog Blog‘ which is basically a science news feed for kids and even gave a small write up to the event, as well as posting a gallery of images here. My thanks to him and his school.

    So there’s a black student there. I understand African immigration has resulted in some tension. Reminds me of what someone said in the old movie GLORY: “The Irish are not known for their fondness for the colored.” Anyway it’s good to see students in a catholic country exposed to real, scientific knowledge. :)
