Take a workshop to your country: Lilu in Dublin

Lilu and Alina visited Eire: A "Lilu's House"-workshop took place on Saturday, April 13th at Dublin City University as part of the annual Irish Science Teachers Association (ISTA) Conference.

The 18 participants, who had traveled from all over Ireland, were mainly primary school teachers with some secondary science teachers.

The focus of the workshop was to gain hands-on experience by exploring many of the experiments from the teaching material: Lilu’s House: Language Skills through Experiments. Each teacher received a copy of the book as well as simple materials to recreate the experiments in their classrooms.

Feedback from the workshop was very positive with many teachers stating that they found the workshop very useful and that they would use Lilu’s House in their classes.

It is hoped to run more Lilu’s House Workshops around Ireland.
