Dr Teresa Barbosa and Dr Suzanne McCarthy from the School of Pharmacy and Dr Aimee Stapleton from APC Microbiome Ireland were delighted to participate in the STE(A)M in Junior Cycle 2020 CPD Calendar programme by facilitating workshops for secondary school teachers, developed as part of the new STEAM curriculum Junior Cycle for Teachers.

The aim of these workshops is to provide professional learning for Junior Cycle teachers with an interest in using societal challenges as a stimulus to engage within and across subject areas.

The School of Pharmacy and APC Microbiome Ireland workshop, addressing the global challenge of Microbial diversity, Antibiotics & Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), was delivered in Cork, Galway and Dublin to over 60 teachers and was very motivating to see so much enthusiasm and interest from the attendees.

Well done to the JCT team for coordinating such a fantastic STE(A)M engagement programme!
