Summer Course 23LC 07 003 - Food Sustainability and Biodiversity – Using nature and food to teach STEM

 Use the link between biodiversity and sustainable food systems to integrate real-life examples of STEM into the classroom.

 Create lesson plans that utilise sustainable food systems and biodiversity as a conduit for STEM, literacy, numeracy as well as physical and mental well-being.

 Use SSE to maximise the effectiveness of teaching biodiversity and sustainable food production in the classroom and through the school as a whole.

 Implement correct health and safety procedures within a classroom environment (inc. simple food safety, knife skills, correct food handling, garden safety and safety for outdoor experiments).

 Identify and be confident in using different biodiversity experiments and observations, cooking techniques and be able to compare and contrast them using a scientific understanding of the processes.

The booking fee is non-refundable. All Summer Courses qualify for EPV days provided you complete the full course over 5 days. Blackrock Education Centre has the right to cancel a course if we DO NOT have the minimum numbers required.
