I was script writer and science consultant on Is Eolaí Mé – an award winning, 22 episode children’s science programme with a new science topic each week. The show has so many elements from science explanations, demos and experiments, to field trips, a weekly science challenge and even a fantastically funny silent black and white short (written by the very talented Patricia Forde).
Is Eolaí Mé won BEST CHILDREN’S TV PROGRAMME at the 2017 Celtic Media Awards.
