STEAM School 2019: residential training in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities for youth work settings
This residential training in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities for youth work settings will help you explore pinhole photography and paper circuit art with youth arts specialists Brian Cregan and Maeve Clancy.
It is delivered as part of a collaboration between NYCI’s Youth Arts Programme and STEAM in Youth Work project, meaning participants will also be eligible to apply for a €5,000 Scientist in Youth Work Residency grant. It will take place over three days at the National University of Maynooth (south campus), Co. Kildare.
Cost: €250.00 for non NYCI members/ €200.00 for NYCI members*
3 days (Monday 16th to Wednesday 18th September 2019)
*STEAM School 2019 is highly subsidised by NYCI’s Youth Arts Programme and STEAM in Youth Work project. Fees include single room accommodation, meals, training, resources and equipment kits to take back to your youth organisation.
WHO IS THIS SUITABLE FOR?
Youth workers, volunteers and youth arts practitioners looking for new skills for delivering creative activities using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) – and the confidence to use them. The modules are specially structured to accommodate those who want to conquer their fear of STEAM in youth work while, at the same time, providing opportunities for advanced skill and knowledge development for those who have been using STEAM within their practice for some time.
Through this project, NYCI aims to support youth workers to either draw out the science in creative activities or strengthen the creative practice within STEAM projects, which are already being undertaken – either way, starting from a place where participants are comfortable!
