CÚRAM’s Teachers in Residence programme has ten places available for five primary and five secondary school teachers, with priority placement given to teachers from DEIS schools. Participants will learn about and receive resources for the classroom including science engagement activities, science capital teaching approach methods, and lesson plan kits developed by teachers for teachers, that are linked with the primary and junior cycle science curricula.

The residency runs from October 2019 until March 2020 for nine evenings. As part of the residency, teachers and their students are invited to attend interactive workshops run by CÚRAM, and participants of the programme will be granted a small honorarium to assist with any travel costs. Teachers from all disciplines are invited to participate, in support of encouraging multidisciplinary approaches to teaching science.

Teachers will work directly with world class researchers and get private tours of CÚRAM laboratories to learn about medical devices research and its impact on healthcare in Ireland and globally. During the residency, teachers will be introduced to and linked to the range of educational resources provided by Science Foundation Ireland and to the ReelLife Science video competition for primary and secondary schools
