Schools: Online activities & Outreach

Covid-19 Restrictions

We are currently closed to the public due to Covid-19.  Even when restrictions are lifted, we do understand that school tours will not be taking place for a while.

So in the meantime…

PLAY

Take a look at our ‘PLAY’ section for some ideas for pairs or pods to do in the classroom or individually at home.  Try our Minifigure Hunt, which uses co-ordinates and gives a brief history of some of Ireland’s famous people.  You will also find colouring in sheets, jigsaws and a tricky Escape Room activity, for 5th and 6th Class age students.

LEARN

We also have online activities for Science and Maths Week from 2020.  Engineers Week tasks and challenges are coming soon!

Three Science activities to do!
