Monday 6th - Wednesday 8th November, 2017
Science Week CPD for Primary Teachers
This course will show participants how to use inquiry based learning techniques to promote children’s learning and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Participants will also explore activities that support the theme of Science Week, around the topic of Heat Transfer. These have been developed from ESA, ESERO and Discover Primary Science and Maths activities.
This course is being offered with the support of Science Foundation Ireland and ESERO Ireland (European Space Education Resource Office).
Tea and coffee will be served at the start of the session.
Note: all sessions require a minimum of 10 participants to run

Since 2009, over 7,000 primary teachers have availed of in-school CPD in over 600 schools as part of the Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) Programme. DPSM is partnering with the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO), allowing us to use space to inspire our next generation of innovators. This year could be your opportunity to avail of CPD if you have not availed of DPSM workshops since 2013/14.
The CPD is open to 150 schools in the 2017/18 school year and is designed to help schools to:
- Grow a love of investigation amongst children by assisting teachers to apply the DPSM/ESERO framework of inquiry based science teaching and learning.
- Make science teaching easier by using the DPSM Classroom Activities Planning Guide and DPSM/ESERO framework of inquiry to deliver the science curriculum in a cross curricular manner.
- Operate a whole school approach to engaging with Science and Maths.
- Understand the relevance of and be able to use space as a cross curricular theme in their planning and teaching.
