This week, every primary and secondary school on the island of Ireland is invited by NUI Galway to take part in the ReelLIFE SCIENCE 2015 Schools Video Competition.

We are delighted to be able to announce a very prestigious panel of Guest Judges who will decide on the overall winners for this year’s competition, funded by the Science Foundation Ireland Discover programme and CÚRAM.
