SEAI Energy Workshop

The Sustainable Authority of Ireland (SEAI) have teamed up with Lifetime Lab to provide a series of interactive hands-on energy workshops for Cork primary schools pupils. There are two distinct age and ability appropriate workshops available:

Senior Energy Workshops

Aimed at 3rd to 6th class pupils, senior energy workshops commence with a short presentation with the aid of 3 colourful display panels and cover the topics of energy sources, climate change, CO2 and what we as individuals can do to reduce the amount of energy we use. This is followed by some fun curriculum linked energy experiments, for example, did you know you can make a battery out of a lemon? . Towards the end of the workshop and to reinforce learning, children play Guzzler's Energy Challenge, where the aim of the game is to collect as many energy points as possible - and avoid the dreaded Sin Bin!
