Recently, our school was lucky enough to be offered the chance to take part in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Climate Action Programme for senior classes.
The programme entailed five online lessons led by STEAM educator, Maria Corcoran, who expertly guided our students in exploring the science of climate change, its causes and effects, and sustainable solutions.
These workshops were a fantastic opportunity for our students to engage in understanding the part they can (and do) play in contributing their ideas towards a greener future.
Lessons were hands-on and filled with fun activities. It is clear to see, from the photos above, how creative they were and how much the children enjoyed and engaged with them.
STEAM is an educational company developed to support and enhance the STEM and Arts capacity of schools. The programme normally costs 1000 euro but was supported by DP Energy and Iberdrola-many thanks to both companies for funding this.
A big thank you also to Mr. Dunford and Ms. Donnellan for coordinating and to Maria and Aibhlin from STEAM Eduction for their support.
