We are delighted to announce a new training and equipment opportunity aimed at helping Youthreach staff to deliver STEAM workshops and programmes (STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths).
This training and equipment opportunity will give you hands-on experience of making and building Leonardo da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge. You will learn how to plan and deliver a variety of fun bridge building workshops that offer learners cross curricular experience in Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.
For only €30/person, you will receive:
- Online training
- Follow-up tutorial
- Workshop and programme planning resources
- Equipment worth up to €100
You will also have access to expert technical support from NYCI as you go on to plan and deliver STEAM workshops and programmes with learners, and free or heavily discounted places at future trainings, tutorials, seminars and events.
Places will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
Cost covers: a one-hour online training session, a follow-up tutorial, workshop and programme planning resources and equipment worth up to €100 (€5/learner that participates. So, for example, if you deliver sessions with 20 learners you will be awarded €5 x 20 = €100)

Past participants in NYCI’s STEAM in Youthreach trainings have said:
It was the best course that I ever did! really enjoyed it as it was practical and informative. I was quite motivated after it and even the coordinator noticed my enthusiasm.
I now am more relaxed when delivering STEAM activities with young people. I am more confident and able to enjoy the process of mutual learning with young people. Without the training I wouldn’t know where to start or even think I am capable. It’s fantastic knowing that you have support to enhance our projects.
STEAM has enhanced that work that we do and it is so relevant to young people. Training, equipment and advice has enabled us to deliver exciting and innovative STEAM programmes.
The majority of our young people would be kinaesthetic learners. The activities, project and ideas that are developed by NYCI STEAM fit with our learners. They learn skills such as teamwork, communication, problem solving. They are learning in such a way as they do not realise they are learning. They are learning through doing and discovery.
Increased confidence and exposure to subjects they never thought they’d have access to.
