‘Brilliant Biomaterials workshops for Science Week and the Galway Science & Technology Festival.
The CÚRAM team were busy in November rolling out their ‘Brilliant Biomaterials’ workshops at secondary schools across Galway City and county.
Many thanks to Colaiste Íognaid, The ‘Bish’, Claregalway College, Presentation College Athenry and Scoil Chuimsitheach Chiaráin in Cararroe for having us to visit. We also had a fun day at the GSTF EXPO Day at NUI Galway on the 22nd November looking at how biomaterials can help repair the human body!
