Come and see Eoin Gill, the man behind the annual Robert Boyle Summer Schools in Lismore, Co. Waterford, in a costumed recreation of Boyle's most famous experiments that demonstrate his fundamental discoveries in physics and chemistry.
Eoin will tell the story of Boyle's life and show how he was a pioneer of the transition from the old world view, inherited from Aristotle, to a recognisably modern scientific approach. Eoin Gill is a director of Calmast STEM Outreach Centre at Waterford Institute of Technology.
There are 3 more lectures on successive Thursdays (not Tuesdays), about Lord Kelvin, his father and brother (both James), and Josiah Wedgewood
