Spectroscopy Workshop

workshop5 Copy

Trinity College in conjunction with the Royal Chemistry Society carried out a workshop in Spectroscopy for Dominican College Senior Physics and Chemistry Classes as part of Dominican College's Science Week today.


‘Spectroscopy in a Suitcase’ allowed the students to learn about spectroscopy through hands-on experience. As well as covering the principles of spectroscopic techniques, the activities use real-life contexts to demonstrate the applications of the techniques as well as the added bonus of using the instruments themselves.

Well Done Debaters

Congratulations to Dominican College’s junior debating team on their win last Thursday in UCD. Oscar Wilde once wrote “Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.” and it is without a shadow of doubt that these young ladies have what it takes to succeed! Not even hurricane Ophelia could stop these fantastically determined students who showed what it really means to work together as a team! It has been my privilege to coach this team since we began our journey this September! (Ms. Donohoe)
