The University of Limerick was a haven for reptiles yesterday when an Animal Magic Roadshow interactive presentation provided an unforgettable hands-on experience for hundreds of primary and secondary school students from all over the Mid West.

Snakes and lizards had free reign as part of the Limerick Festival of Science programme of activities and experiences to celebrate the role of science in everyday life.

Designed to spark curiosity, inspire imagination and unleash the potential that can help shape the future, the festival set out to challenge stereotypes so young people could see the diversity of people that work in science and technology.

This year’s event featured a range of scientists and engineers from various backgrounds, ages, and disciplines. A variety of interactive talks, workshops, quizzes, competitions, cafe science and fun activities were held throughout the week.
