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.

Science on Stage at the Conference Elixir to Schools

About 200 teachers of physics and natural sciences from all over Czech Republic came together at the weekend conference 'Elixir to schools' in Hradec Králové. The teachers had the opportunity to see three physics lectures, to visit the Inspiration Forum and to participate in 40 workshops.

The workshop 'Fragments from Science on Stage' for around thirty teachers was prepared by Jitka Houfková from Science on Stage Czech Republic and Jitka Soukupová, participant to Science on Stage festivals in 2015 and 2017. At the workshop the teachers were introduced to Science on Stage and its activities and tried out some experiments of the former European Science on Stage festivals in London and Debrecen.

Some of the participants of the workshop are most likely to join the next Czech Science on Stage festival, which will take place on 13 October 2018 in Liberec. For further information follow this link.
