National programme to help children learn about energy through the primary science curriculum
Exploring our Energy is a programme to help children learn about energy through the primary science curriculum. The programme explores energy and science in a real world way, exploring how and why as a society, we need to develop new ways of looking at our energy resources. Exploring our Energy is underpinned by and supports the Primary Science Curriculum (DES, 1999). It will help children to develop their knowledge about energy, energy efficiency and conservation. Based on sound theory, the programme involves good practice, real life learning experiences and whole-school approaches. This programme has been developed through a collaboration between CASTeL and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).
