Second Pilot Workshop run in Sligo

After some adjustments based on feedback we got from our Trinity College Dublin (TCD) Chemistry PhD researchers during the first pilot workshop, we brought our new workshop to the North West of Ireland to gather further feedback from PhD’s in the Atlantic Technological University (ATU), Sligo.

This time we also tested out some of our evaluation processes as well as a more finalised version of the workshop for secondary schools. It was fantastic for the project team from both institutions to finally meet in-person at ATU Sligo.

Huge thanks to our ATU project partners for a wonderful day as well as the 8 PhD researchers who provided us with so much valuable feedback for the new workshop. Like the TCD PhD researchers, this also served as a training programme for the ATU Sligo PhD’s who are now ready to run these workshops in the North West of Ireland from September 2022 onwards!

Our First Pilot Workshop was a Success!

We ran our first pilot workshop with Trinity College Dublin (TCD) PhD researchers. They provided us with hugely valuable feedback so we could iron out any remaining chemical, narrative and logistic issues. Thank you to everyone who took part!

This workshop also served as a training exercise for our PhD researchers who will be running these workshops with secondary schools from September 2022 onwards. Thanks to everyone who took part in this and for your feedback which has helped us finalise these workshops.

First Teacher CPD Workshop Run in Galway

We were delighted to kick off our project with a hybrid Science Teacher CPD and Focus Group event in partnership with the Galway Branch of the Irish Science Teachers Association (ISTA). Thank you to the Dominican College Taylors Hill for hosting us and to the Galway ISTA committee for organizing it.

Thank you also for the hugely positive feedback!
