This course will show participants how to use inquiry based learning techniques to promote children’s learning and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Participants will also explore activities that support the theme of Engineers’ Week. These have been developed from the Discovery Primary Science and Maths resources.

The course has the theme of “The Power of Water” and will investigate ideas around climate change, rising sea levels and flood defences.

This course is being offered with the support of Science Foundation Ireland and ESERO Ireland (European Space Education Resource Office).
