The Talk Science Irvine Bay School Programme will continue during 2015/16. This education programme includes talks, lectures and workshops for pupils and students across Irvine Bay.These activities, supported by Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, are FREE to schools and available at any point during the school year.
Activities focus on the ongoing regeneration of Irvine Bay, realising the potential in areas such as:
All of our talks are by experts, keen to enthuse and excite students on a wide range of subjects. Many of our speakers are willing to work with the teachers, to tailor their talks to fit with class curriculums, and to different age groups and class sizes. In this programme you will get a flavour of some of the speakers we have available, along with their lecture topics. If, however, there is something in particular you would like a speaker for, just get in touch and we will endeavour to find a speaker to suit.
Free to schools
The talks are FREE to schools! The RSE will cover all speakers' costs, including travel and accommodation. All the school needs to provide is a venue for the talk and, of course, the audience! Teachers are also asked to supervise students during talks and provide some feedback afterwards.
More information on the full list of talks is available here.
If you would like to invite one of our speakers to your school, enquire about other topics or find out more information, please contact Kate Kennedy, Project Officer.
