Schools: Online activities & Outreach


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.


We also have online activities for Science, Maths and Engineers Week.
