Tools to teach energy in the classroom
Book a free workshop with an SEAI facilitator and learn how to use the Exploring your Energy resources in the classroom. This 1 hour workshop will give you all the tools you need to teach this aspect of the primary science curriculum, in a fun and interactive way.
We will explain the key features of the resources including interactive whiteboard use, inquiry based science approaches and the spiral nature of the programme.
These workshops can be done as part of schools planning day or Croke Park hours. This is subject to school management approval in accordance with DES circulars.
