Science Week CPD for Primary Teachers

Science Week CPD – Moons, Moons, Moons

Explore the science of our nearest celestial neighbour, The Moon, and learn about the other moons we know about!

How old is it? How did it form? Why do we only see one side? What made the craters?

Through a series of activities we will address all these questions and more

  • Make your own Meteorites, and use them to make impact craters
  • How does the Moon differ from Earth? We look at Weather, Gravity, Earth and Space
  • We’ll learn how the Moon is valued by different cultures.

This free, 2-hour 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). These have been developed from ESERO and Discovery Primary Science & Maths resources. 

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