MOBILE SCIENCE WORKSHOPS
Our Primary School Mobile Science Workshops are always a winning way to get STEM in your school. With a wide range of topics, a flexible schedule and most importantly great content, we visit your school and bring some magic to Science, without the cost and hassle of a bus. Each workshop takes place in your classroom and is fully interactive and hands-on. We provide all equipment.
In general, the workshop takes place in the childrens’ own classroom. We spend one hour per classroom and depending on the size of your school, we can bring multiple facilitators to run workshops simultaneously.

We went to the Heritage Centre to view the new Lismore Castle Experience. What a way to see inside the Castle and the rooms!
I won’t spoil it by writing it here but IT is a MUST DO when you go to Lismore!!
Omg what a fantastic experience I don’t think I have enjoyed anything more in a very long time from the moment we were met by the tour guide Sheena who was personable and knowledge in such a relaxed and warm atmosphere, the 360 tour was just so Wonderful and I felt we were taken back in time ,I would highly recommend this tour.
Went to see audio Wednesday 2nd March. We thought it was incredible. It started wt. plan view of castle and surrounding fields and river it then showed some rooms inside castle. Absolutely loved it. Worth a visit. Outside viewing room was history of famous people. Lismore experience.
Delivers what it promises. Good place to go for advice on touring,. The 360 degree virtual visit to Lismore Castle was most enjoyable. Clean toilets.Dun01170, Dublin, Ireland, Aug 2021
Super VR tour of Lismore Castle. This was so much fun for everyone including the child who couldn’t stay on his seat. It’s not long so children won’t get bored, but it’s very well done.
