Science Week - Family Day in the Lego Education Innovation Studio
As part of Science Week 2017, Learn it in partnership with the DCU - LEGO Education Innovation Studio and with the support of Science Foundation Ireland ran a day of family workshops on Sunday the 19th November. Throughout the day over 350 parents and children attended a variety of STEM based workshops using a wide range of robotics and engineering resources. Many of these workshops were facilitated by current DCU IOE students as well recently qualified graduates of the Digital Learning specialism on the B.Ed programme. The focus of the workshops was to communicate to parents the importance of STEM Education and how experiences such as these workshops can inspire their children to become the world’s future creators and help ignite a passion to pursue STEM careers.
