Primary School children in Luxembourg will get the opportunity to experience hands-on science and maths workshops Cork-style, as local primary science centre Lifetime Lab participates in Discovering the World Week.
Discovering the World is a science-themed series of events and activities centred on delivering international educational experiences to primary school children in Luxembourg, with participants selected from countries all over Europe. Lifetime Lab @ Old Cork Waterworks was specifically identified as an ideal candidate for its “hands-on” approach to promoting science and maths, and is the only centre from Ireland and Britain to have been invited.
Mervyn Horgan, Manager of Lifetime Lab, says, “The invitation is a compliment to our education programmes, to be identified internationally and invited to participate is a testament to the success of Lifetime Lab”. He further says, “Close to 8,000 primary school children, from senior infants to sixth classes, experience a positive experience of science, maths, technology and engineering. You could say we are a science nursery, inspiring the minds of the future”.
Lifetime Lab will deliver two distinct hands on workshops to over 1000 children while in Luxembourg: “MathsWorks” explores a multi sensory approach to primary maths and “Simple Circuits” focuses on electricity.
Lifetime Lab @ Old Cork Waterworks is Cork’s primary science centre, an accredited discover primary science & maths venue, and has received numerous international and national awards. For more information, please visit the Lifetime Lab website, send an email, or call 021 4941500.
