Exploring our Energy explores energy and climate change in a practical and exciting way through a range of interactive digital resources. St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra developed the programme and as such it underpins and supports the Primary Science Curriculum and is designed to help primary school children learn about energy. Teacher CPD workshops are available to all primary schools around the country and can count towards Croke Park hours, subject to school management approval in accordance with DES circulars.
