Codling Wind Park has teamed up with STEAM to provide a programme on climate change.
Codling Wind Park has teamed up with STEAM Education Limited to provide a solution-focused education programme on climate change to primary schools in the Wicklow and Greystones municipal districts.
The five-lesson programme explores what climate change is, the causes and effects on humans, nature, and the environment, and looks at engineering and technology solutions for a sustainable future. Delivered by STEAM experts from industry and academia, the sessions will also help to inspire primary school children to love STEAM subjects and to become the future generation of Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, Artists and Mathematicians.
Following an initial successful trial at St. Coen’s NS in Rathnew, the programme has since been delivered to children at St. Kevin’s NS in Greystones, with two further schools planned for May.
Ms Griffin, teacher at St Kevin’s NS, said: “This was a very worthwhile series of workshops for 6th class, the students really engaged with the topics in a range of hands-on ways. In the weeks since the workshops ended, the children are far more aware of and interested in environmental topics, and biodiversity in Ireland."
