What’s it all about?

We have now launched the application process for our exciting new ‘STEM in Youth Work’ project.  This project will help youth workers to inspire their young people to create, invent and make with confidence and curiosity, and increase engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

 

As well as receiving a day of hands-on Techspace Maker Training and follow-up support, you will receive an equipment grant that you can use to go on and deliver technology-enhanced activities spanning electronics, robotics and coding to music, arts and crafts with your young people.

 

Is this just for Techies?

Absolutely not! This is for everyone with an interest in learning new and innovative methods of working with young people in ways that are most interesting to them, regardless of existing knowledge of science and technology. The follow-up support means that even if you are terrified of tech, after the one-day training, we will be on hand to help you overcome any teething problems you have with your activities, the equipment and so on. 

 

How to find out more?

To find out more about the project and the equipment you will receive, contact Barbara Nea on 01 4784122 or barbara@nyci.ie.

 

How much and how to pay?

This training and support package is heavily subsidised at a cost of €100 per person. Payment and cancellation policy details are available here.

A little bit more information

Spaces are limited and will go to youth sector organisations first. If you are not from a youth sector organisation, please get in touch anyway by completing this form, and we will add your details to our waiting list. 

To ensure this project provides as many young people as possible with access to STEM activities, we’re encouraging participating youth workers to work together and to share equipment where possible.

This is a partnership project between the National Youth Council of Ireland and Camara Education Ireland. Training and support is delivered through the Techspace programme.

 

This project is funded by the Science Foundation of Ireland’s Discover Programme.
