Aoibheann Bird's mission to bring STEM around Europe features in the Irish Times

Insight's EPE manager Aoibheann Bird featured in The Irish Times yesterday. This summer she and fellow devotee to citizen science Phil Smyth drove the Do It Together Science Bus from Amsterdam, through Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. The aim was to engage people in do-it-yourself science and they used the bus as a base from which to conduct workshops. They also collected folk remedies and life hacks from participants. Aoibheann and Phil were chosen by the Waag Society in the Netherlands - an institute for art, science and technology chich is also a leader in digital media. Fittingly, Aoibheann and Phil vlogged throughout their trip. You'll soon be able to see their videos on the Insight Youtube Channel. In the meantime you can catch them here.
