The Power of the Microscope - STEAM Workshop for Teachers and Parents

Whether you’re a teacher, a parent or indeed anyone who spends time with children, this hands-on explorative workshop will show you practical, fun and effective ways to teach children about the power of the microscope.

Delivered by Lindsay Deely of Toodlelou Creativity Lab, find out how and why microscopes are used by scientists every day and then put your learnings into action with children in the classroom or at home.

Lindsay will also be delivering workshops for children to journey into the fascinating world of microscopy. Workshops for schools take place Mon-Fri and workshops for the public take place on Saturday and Sunday. Full details here.

Since opening in April 2017, Toodlelou Creativity Lab in Oranmore has seen more than 2,300 young people come through the door to experience the magic of creating, tinkering and experimenting. Toodlelou is owned and run by two Moms, one a science communicator, the other an artist, who wanted to create a hands-on and fun way to explore creativity with young people and allow them the creative freedom to generate art, crafts, creations and experiments.
