Eoin Gill- Director of Calcast - STEM Promoter & Robert Boyle Summer School

Explore Life Sciences

Eoin Gill is a director of Calmast STEM Engagement Centre in Waterford Institute of Technology, coming first to the institute as a lecturer in environmental engineering. He is passionate about promoting STEM for all: in the 20 years since the foundation of Calmast, Eoin has been involved in all areas of STEM promotion and has organised thousands of events reaching hundreds of thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.   Eoin is particularly proud of Maths Week Ireland – the leading such festival in the world - that attracts annual participation of around 400,000 across the island of Ireland and the Robert Boyle Summer School, founded in 2012, which is Ireland’s first annual gathering for adults exploring science in our culture. Eoin has been prominent in promoting the life and legacy of Waterford born Boyle in Ireland and abroad and has given many presentations on Boyle to highlight Ireland’s scientific heritage including costumed re-enactments of Boyle’s Experiments. During Eoin’s time with Calmast the centre has won numerous awards including the Descartes Award for Science Communication 2006, awarded by the European Commission and recently the Education Awards 2021 (Ireland) Best Outreach Award and also in 2021, Highly Commended in THE Awards, the first Irish organisation to be so honoured.

Sir Robert Boyle: Christian Virtuoso

Great in God’s Sight

For those who have heard of Sir Robert Boyle, his name may invoke the image of a bewigged gentleman with curly locks falling far past his shoulders, or perhaps his contribution to the PV=nRT ideal gas equation that is a staple of chemistry courses. However, many do not know that this early Father of Modern Chemistry was a supremely devoted follower of Jesus who essentially blazed a scientific trail to defend his faith. Episode 3 of Season 2 is one you won’t want to miss, as we delve into the incredible, but virtually unknown, story of Sir Robert Boyle. We'll be back soon with another inspiring story, but in the meantime, check out the incredible artwork, custom-created for today's episode on Boyle, at thegreatpodcast.org!

Robert Boyle

In Our Time: Science

Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the life and work of Robert Boyle, a pioneering scientist and a founder member of the Royal Society. Born in Ireland in 1627, Boyle was one of the first natural philosophers to conduct rigorous experiments, laid the foundations of modern chemistry and derived Boyle's Law, describing the physical properties of gases. In addition to his experimental work he left a substantial body of writings about philosophy and religion; his piety was one of the most important factors in his intellectual activities, prompting a celebrated dispute with his contemporary Thomas Hobbes.With:Simon SchafferProfessor of the History of Science at the University of CambridgeMichael HunterEmeritus Professor of History at Birkbeck College, University of LondonAnna Marie RoosSenior Lecturer in the History of Science and Medicine at the University of LincolnProducer: Thomas Morris.
