ViClarity support Kerry Science Festival

ViClarity were one of a number of local Kerry companies in the Technology and Science sectors that were chosen to take part in the ‘STEM in Kerry Showcase‘ which was held in the Institute of Technology Tralee last Saturday.

The inaugural event was a roaring success saw approximately 3000 people from every age group attending. There were dedicated workshops for children which focused on Lego Machines and Mechanisms, Maths, Microscopes, Spectroscopy, Rockets and Bubbles. Those who took part in these workshops experienced a wide range of science experiments, many of which relate to our every day lives. They also took part in making homemade microscopes, Lego robots and leaning about the science of bubbles.

ViClarity was proud to be part of the exhibitors which focused on the ‘careers in STEM Event‘ where we spoke to college students looking to begin their careers in STEM related industries and also younger students who had questions about the best route to take when looking for a career in STEM. Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, broadcaster and lecture, facilitated a very interesting and captivating panel discussion where company representatives spoke about varied STEM careers available to graduates in Kerry and beyond.

We are delighted to be a proud support of this event and we are looking forward to next years one already. If anyone met us on the day and wants more information please feel free to contact us on tracy.fitzgerald@viclarity.com.
