g4g@work at AIG in Dublin

On May 23, 2017 the North Wall Quay office opened its doors to 80 enthusiastic girls aged 11-15 from across 25 Dublin GAA clubs as they geared up for a full day of workshops! Girls explored physics with plasma balls, calculated the speed of light with chocolate, "charged" up their very own fruit battery, tasted the sweet sides of statistics with M&Ms - and with an exciting visit from the Dublin GAA ladies to explore the science behind sports!
