Iarsmalann Míoleolaíocht agus Bitheolaíocht Mara

Bh√≠ l√° iontach ag p√°ist√≠ Rang a hAon ar an Luan seo caite 8√ļ l√° de Bhealtaine, nuair a thug muid cuairt ar Iarsmalann M√≠oleola√≠ocht agus Bitheola√≠ocht Mara in Ollscoil na Gaillimhe.

Ar maidin chuaigh muid go dti an Iarsmalann Geola√≠ochta James Mitchell i gCearn√≥g na hOllscoile.  Ansin thug muid cuairt ar an Iarsmalann M√≠oleola√≠ocht agus Bitheola√≠ocht Mara.  Bh√≠ l√≥n ansin againn sa gCearn√≥g.

Tar √©is l√≥n bh√≠ deis ag na p√°ist√≠ cuid do na hainmhithe and√ļchasacha a fheice√°il agus a l√°mhse√°il faoi sti√ļir an saineola√≠ Dayle Leonard.  B‚Äôiontach an taith√≠ a bh√≠ anseo do na p√°ist√≠.

Last Monday 8th Of May Rang a hAon went on an educational tour to the Zoology and Marine Biology Museum on the NUIG Campus in Galway city.

To start the tour we visited the James Mitchell Geology Museum, nicknamed ‚ÄúGalway‚Äôs Hidden Museum‚ÄĚ in the Quadrangle building.  Here the children were given a guided tour of the large collection of rare rocks, ancient fossils and precious gems on display.

The children then had lunch on the lawn in the Quadrangle.  After lunch we walked over to the Ryan Institute where the newly refurbished Zoology and Marine Biology Museum is housed.  Here the children received a guided tour of the museum and its over 500 specimens on display.  These included a wide range of animals, native and exotic creatures from all over the world.

Finally, we met Dayle Leonard a Masters student in the Venom Systems and Proteomics Laboratory in the Zoology department.  Here Dayle showcased some of the animals under his care including, Kenge the Argentine Black and White Tegu, a stick insect, a Burmese Python, an Axolotl name Axel, a Tarantula, a South American Tortoise, and a Leopard Gecko named Leah.

During the class Dayle explained to the children about the various animals and their habitats and characteristics.  Everyone got a chance to view and handle some the animals under Dayle‚Äôs expert supervision.  The children really enjoyed the Q & A session at the end of the class.  This tour was an amazing experience for the children.
