Environmental Education Internship

Company profile:

The Rediscovery Centre is a national centre for waste education, research, innovation and enterprise development which aims to demonstrate excellence in waste prevention, reduction, reuse, recycling and recovery. Sustainability is at the core of the Rediscovery Centre, which aims to break away from the traditional views of waste and waste management systems and instead demonstrate the potential of waste resource. For more information please see www.rediscoverycentre.ie

Our new centre in Ballymun, the WISER LIFE project, is transforming the iconic Ballymun Boiler House into a 3D textbook; a novel interactive experience and learning environment designed to stimulate curiosity in the natural, physical and cultural environment and promote sustainable living for the circular economy. The Rediscovery Centre is very active in the field of waste and environmental education. The Rediscovery Centre offers a range of education workshops for primary and secondary school students, which focus on interactive, practical learning about environmental issues. The school workshops are linked to the national curricula and are based on hands-on enquiry and experiential learning tailored to class requirements. Workshops are offered in the Rediscovery Centre’s Boiler House in Ballymun or onsite outreach workshops in schools covering topics related to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
