Science on Stage Books

Books of teaching ideas and demos selected by the Irish team members at European festivals (2000-2017) have been produced. These books have been sent to all science teachers in Ireland and can be downloaded in PDF format here. The development and distribution of the books has been made possible by support from CASTeL at Dublin City University, the Institute of Physics (IoP) in Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Discover Programme and the Professional Development Services for Teachers (PDST).



Science on Stage Videos

Videos (in English and Irish) of teaching ideas selected by Irish team members at European Festivals (2000-2017) have been produced. The production of these video resources has been made possible by support from CASTeL at Dublin City University, the Institute of Physics (IoP) in Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Discover Programme and the Professional Development Services for Teachers (PDST).
