22AUT69 STEMpathy Teacher Training

22AUT69 STEMpathy Teacher Training
STEMpathy is a programme for primary schools that teaches children how to apply the principles of design thinking to create solutions for characters living in Dublin in 2100. We explore the Sustainable Development Goals, create a character who has superpowers and challenges, develop empathy through fun exercises, generate lots of ideas, develop our ideas through positive feedback, build a prototype to help demonstrate our idea and then share our work with the whole school community.
STEMpathy was developed as part of our Fiosracht initiative funded by SFI’s Discover programme. TU Dublin Tallaght Campus worked in partnership with schools in Lucan and Tallaght to pilot the programme.

We are now offering a short course for teachers of 5th and 6th Class who would like to introduce their students to STEMpathy - a fun, creative, empowering STEM project which has empathy at its heart.

This course consists of:
  • A series of five practical workshops that explore each stage of our STEMpathy methodology and prepare teachers to deliver STEMpathy in their own classrooms.
  • Classroom materials that help you guide your students through their own journey of discovery
  • Reflective discussion on common pitfalls with solutions and detail on how it all links to the primary curriculum.
  • A community of practice to support for you as you deliver the programme

The first session will be online from 5pm to 5.45pm on Monday 3rd October.  The subsequent sessions will be on Monday from 3.30pm to 5pm on the TU Dublin Tallaght Campus as shown below.
