About the Event
MTU's ‘Science for Life’ Programme has increased the number of workshops in Access Linked Schools in the past number of years. We continue to lead students towards third level education by making learning as much fun as possible. We aim to achieve this by helping students to focus on science at junior cycle with lots of fun workshops, allowing students hands on experience science in Transition Year with field trips and helping students achieve their goals through academic support in senior cycle.
Our workshops start out being incredibly fun, messy and colourful. Junior cycle students can take part in a variety of activities outlined below e.g. exploding volcanoes or making lava lamps. Gradually the workshops become more challenging (senior electronics workshop) and lean towards academic support as the senior students get nearer the Leaving Certificate. All workshops aim to help students enjoy science more and enable students to link all aspects of science with every day life.
