We live in an increasingly technological world, and its complexity continues to throw up challenges that require answers. Scientists make exciting discoveries and help solve global problems; those who study Science subjects at The Institute of Education learn to understand the nuts and bolts of life, of our universe and how all these nuts and bolts fit together.
Science subjects help to develop strong problem-solving skills by exploring the world through the means of analysis, observation and understanding. Students at the Institute are also supported and encouraged to participate in competitions such as the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition and SciFest – a national STEM programme for schools in Ireland.
The Institute of Education has dedicated, staffed laboratory spaces and kitchen areas to accommodate the full range of Science subjects with hands-on, practical classes. Students learn in a safe and comfortable environment with the latest equipment and the best teaching methods. Fully qualified Science Laboratory Technicians are also employed at the Institute to help support and improve the student’s practical knowledge.
Our teachers have written text books for both Junior and Leaving Certificate syllabus and have a deep understanding of the exam system.
