In partnership with SEAI, Lifetime Lab is offering free Teacher CPD workshops based on “Exploring our Energy”, a whole school programme for teaching energy in the primary school curriculum. This one hour workshop will give you all the tools you need to teach energy and sustainability in the SESE curriculum. We will explain the key features of the resources including interactive whiteboard use, inquiry based science approaches and the spiral nature of the programme. A set of resources to plan and teach a wide range of science lessons covering all four strands of the primary science curriculum at every level of primary school will also be provided. These workshops can count towards Croke Park hours, subject to school management approval in accordance with DES Circulars and are particularly relevant for schools applying for their Green Flag for Energy. Ideally schools should have a minimum of 10 teachers and a maximum of 20 to participate in the training. Smaller schools can join together and larger schools can be split into two groups.
