Free Tinkering Workshops for Schools
Tinkering is an inclusive, innovative and collaborative educational approach with an aim to promote lifelong engagement with science. In 2019/2020 Science Gallery Dublin will work with primary and secondary school teachers to integrate tinkering into their class curriculum. Thirty teachers, along with their classes, will be invited to participate in free workshops in the gallery. Priority will be given to DEIS schools to increase the science capital of students from these schools. Science capital is the sum of a young person’s exposure and access to science and technology.
