STEM Sa Bhaile 

 

In May and June 2020, the Primary STEM team designed and presented a series of four live webinars titled ‘STEM sa Bhaile’. The purpose of each webinar was to share practical resources, ideas and learning experiences to support teachers in the area of STEM, both in school and at home, as teachers navigated distance learning.  The recordings of each webinar can be accessed below. Please click on the STEM sa Bhaile icon to access the resources from the webinars. 

While schools have reopened, these resources could be easily adapted for classroom use or used in blended learning. These activities would also be very helpful for teachers supporting very high risk pupils or pupils who are isolating at home due to COVID-19 guidelines.
