Course tutor: Nuala Madigan

During this course our facilitator Nuala Madigan will help you as a teacher to teach children about climate change, in a hands-on and practical way through inquiry-based STEM learning.  Nuala will take full advantage of the beautiful outdoor areas and learning opportunities at the venue, Airfield Estate.  She’ll look at the science behind climate change, the role of space exploration in understanding our planet and its processes and the importance of biodiversity. You will learn how to teach about this important topic in a positive and solutions focused way. 

While primarily STEM based, the course makes strong links with language and literacy as well as creative arts and a cross curricular approach is modelled throughout. Nuala will cover the links between climate change and wellbeing by demonstrating how to connect children with the natural world and involving them in simple positive changes in school and at home.  She will also make use of a range of resources from the SFI Curious Minds programme, the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

*Teachers will need to bring a laptop or other device to access online course materials.
