An exciting, innovative workshop for 3rd to 6th Class. What is energy and how do we use it? What is renewable energy and why is it important? How can we reduce our energy use? Explore all these questions and more with this interactive, hands-on programme, led by experienced education guides.

Students can investigate solar, hydro and wind technologies on site and generate their own energy. Activities and games explore energy concepts from food chains to energy use and insulation, and help build awareness about energy use and how to reduce it. Students leave with greater understanding of all these issues and with ideas to take back to school and their families. The workshop links with several strands of the SESE curriculum.

Programmes are all-weather, with a range of indoor facilities and covered areas for wet weather. However, participants are advised to dress appropriately for the changeable Irish weather.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”3hr workshop: €11.00 per student” font_container=”tag:h6|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Tenor%20Sans%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22color%22%3A%22%23294936%22%2C%22text-align%22%3A%22left%22%2C%22font-weight%22%3A%22700%22%2C%22margin-top%22%3A%2215px%22%2C%22padding-top%22%3A%220px%22%7D%7D”][us_btn label=”Enquire Now” link=”url:%23cf3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22margin-top%22%3A%220%22%2C%22margin-bottom%22%3A%220%22%2C%22padding-top%22%3A%220%22%2C%22padding-bottom%22%3A%220%22%7D%7D”][vc_column][us_separator show_line=”1″ thick=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” content_placement=”middle”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”SEAI In-school Energy Workshops” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Tenor%20Sans%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22color%22%3A%22%23294936%22%2C%22text-align%22%3A%22left%22%2C%22font-weight%22%3A%22700%22%2C%22margin-top%22%3A%220px%22%2C%22padding-top%22%3A%2230px%22%7D%7D”][vc_column_text]Take part in one of our free student workshops and explore the topic of energy and sustainability in a fun and engaging way.
