Open Day: Science

Each year Trinity hosts an Open Day which is aimed at prospective students i.e. secondary level, mature students etc. During the Open Day a series of presentations are given covering most of Trinity's courses. Science took the opportunity to record some of their 2014 presentations to give you the prospective student an indication of the content covered in Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Mathematics and Physics.

Overview of Science at Trinity (Prof Graeme Watson)



Mathematics: Exploring the neighbourhood of infinity (Prof Vladimir Dotsenko)



Geography: Science and Geography in a rapidly changing world (Prof Pete Coxon)


Microbiology: The Weird and Wonderful World of Microbiology (Prof Shane Dillon)


Physics: Grains on the Move (Prof Matthias Mobius)


Genetics: The Secret of Life (Prof Kevin Mitchell)


Chemistry: :Life without Chemistry (Prof Sylvia Draper)



The Open Day also gives prospective students an opportunity to meet with teaching staff and current students for all courses at the individual course stands. See what Science entrants 2014 have to say about Science at Trinity.
