Nature At Home

Nature At Home is the work of a team of academics and researchers in the Ryan Institute at NUI Galway. The Ryan Institute formed COVID-19 Rapid Response teams within days of the shut down of Ireland’s schools and universities with the aim of helping Ireland respond to the global pandemic. It is essential that we all socially distance to halt the spread of the disease, and for kids, this means no play dates, no sleepovers and potentially boredom. How can we help? We have drawn on our collective wealth of knowledge about nature and biodiversity and, with a little help from our friends in the School of Computer Science and the Insight Centre, are blogging out ideas and fun activities to keep kids of all ages occupied.
