Aviator Gathering October 2013

The Aviators of the Future from 2012 and 2013 have met over the past two days. On Tuesday the Aviators met in Galway Education Centre. There we met Edite Amorim of Thinking Big, from Portugal. Edite worked with a group of Transition Year students last year and was extremely popular. We were thrilled to bring Edite back to work with the Aviators. The day was most enjoyable, interesting and a time to catch up with old friends and meet the Aviators from both years. Learn about Edite’s work here:

On Wednesday we had a guided tour of The Casement Aerodrome and Museum in Baldonnel. Thanks to Conor Furey from Naas who helped us organise our visit:






Also, much thanks to Captain Brendan O’ Dowd in the Press Office and John McCormick, Regimental Sergeant Major who set up our visit.



We were delighted to get a guided tour of the Garda Helicopter thanks to Brian Coade of the Garda Air Support Unit.




Following Baldonnel we visited the Science Gallery in Trinity College to tour the exhibition Grow Your Own which looks at Synthetic Biology.

There we met Joe Roche, the resident astrophysicist in the Science Gallery, who provided us with a guided tour and spoke to us about his research, passion and love for Science! Follow him on Twitter on @joeboating
