The Rediscovery Centre provides a variety of exciting and interactive workshops that are linked to the primary curriculum and which can be delivered online and later in the year at our centre, in the Boiler House Ballymun, or in your own classroom. Our educators are trained in the delivery of environmental education and are Garda vetted. The Rediscovery Centre is an accredited Discover Centre under the Curious Minds programme. This Programme is part of Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Education and Public Engagement Programme, which aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public. (www.curiousminds.ie).
The virtual workshops will be delivered through the Zoom app, for a live interactive educational experience. The workshops include a talk on the topic, group discussions and games, hands-on activities and investigations, resulting in an engaging experience for the participants.
