From the Marine Institute: “The Explorers Education Programme aims to inspire school teachers and their students in developing their interest, knowledge and engagement in our ocean. The programme’s website provides cross curricular lesson plans, resources and activities that support the national curriculum.
The Explorers in schools programme provides outreach experts that visit classes around the coast of Ireland supporting teachers by introducing marine themes into their class activities. The Explorers programme also provides teachers training and continuing professional development courses approved by the Department of Education and Skills.
