The Inventor’s Workshop - Northern Ireland Teachers ONLY NN029

This 2-day course will be a combination of a 1 day face to face training with the opportunity to build and test models with a follow up online session.


Teachers will be introduced to ideas for developing and enhancing their own Science and Technology subject knowledge within the World Around Us curriculum, and build confidence in supporting pupils to develop their learning through designing and building models.  The course will explore a range of inventions with particular reference to Northern Ireland inventors and will provide planners and resources for all of the activities as well as lots of ideas to take back for classroom use across the key stages.
