The pupils of Scoil Mhuire in Tullamore celebrated science this week with a visit from 'Marine Dimensions' and had the opportunity to explore all sorts of sealife thanks to the team from local development company, Midlands Science and local corporate sponsor, Integra LifeSciences.

John O’ Donovan, ‎Plant Manager at Integra LifeSciences Ireland Ltd commented,‘Integra is very pleased to partner with Midlands Science as a corporate sponsor in order to provide hands-on, interactive science events to some of our local primary schools."

"Science surrounds us in ways that we don’t often think and we need to do all we can to ensure that young people understand the importance and significance of science in day to day life," he added.

"The Midlands Science Festival creates many opportunities for people of all ages to connect with and celebrate science and Integra is delighted to be a part of this for 2017."
