Why Students and Teachers Benefit

Working together as a group, teachers can use the provided worksheets, plans and tips to help students to investigate their own interests, discover answers and a greater appreciation of STEM subjects. The fun, practical programme will help children develop skills in scientific literacy, critical thinking, creativity and communication.

ESB's role

In partnership with the RDS, the ESB has committed to bring ESB Science Blast to as many primary schools as possible across Ireland to encourage and inspire the next generation of engineers, innovators and creators. ESB’s support has allowed this national event to grow to new heights every year. From ESB Science Blast TV to our traveling roadshow to help schools take part, all leading to three national student project showcase events.
