Course Information

During this course we will help you as a teacher to teach children about climate change, in a hands-on and practical way through inquiry-based STEM learning.  Each venue offers outdoor learning opportunities which we’ll avail of during the course. We will look at the science behind climate change, the role of space exploration in understanding our planet and its processes and the importance of biodiversity. You will learn how to teach about this important topic in a positive and solutions focused way. 

While primarily STEM based, the course makes strong links with language and literacy as well as creative arts and a cross curricular approach is modelled throughout. The course looks at the links between climate change and wellbeing by demonstrating how to connect children with the natural world and involving them in simple positive changes in school and at home.

The course will make use of a range of resources from the SFI Curious Minds programme, the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

*Teachers will need to bring a laptop or other device to access online course materials.
