STEAMING Through Dark Skies and Biodiversity
This is a new online course developed in partnership with Discover Primary Science & Maths (DPSM), Blackrock Castle Observatory (BCO), Wildways Adventures and Mayo Dark Skies, to offer you an insight into Ireland’s Dark Skies Heritage as well as examining how light pollution affects biodiversity..

Discover Climate & Space
This online course was introduced last year and was very popular.  It was developed in partnership DPSM and gives you the knowledge and confidence to teach students the difference between weather and climate and also looks at causes and effects of climate change.  The course will also prepare you to lead your students through the European Space Agency Climate Detectives project.

Teaching Space in Junior Classes
This online course was developed in partnership with Blackrock Castle Observatory and DPSM and is specifically designed for teachers of Junior Classes.  This course is an online version of the “Junior Rocket Scientists” course that was previously offered at BCO and Lough Gur Heritage Centre.
