We are very excited to be part of Science Week once again this year
'Explore Ireland's Waterways' is our online workshop which takes you on a virtual visit of exploration to your local canal, river or lake. The workshop will be shared on our Learning Zone website during Science Week which runs from 13th - 20th November.
The workshop is full of fun and interesting activities covering a range of topics ideal for either classroom based or outdoor learning.
- What is biodiversity? Do you know what the words species, habitat of ecosystem mean?? Check out our Waterways Wildlife Fact File to find out more about the diverse variety of wildlife found within our waterways.
- Our waterways are a haven of biodiversity. It's very important that we all respect these environments while we enjoy the benefits they offer. Our Waterways Hero activity highlights the importance of being a responsible waterway user.
- Make you own Waterway Eco-Dial to bring it on a nature walk or watch 'Explore Ireland's Waterways' video to identify some of the plants & animals living along your local waterway
- Make the most of the last of the autumn leaves with our Autumn on the Waterways tree creation activity.
