We are pleased to announce that from September 2018 the INFOMAR program will feature in the national Junior Cycle curriculum.
As part of an initiative to develop our Education & Outreach program we have teamed up with ScoilNet, an on-line education portal, to bring seabed mapping into every classroom in the country. Each individual class-room plan, created by experienced Geography teachers will make our data accessible and fun to work with via a series of defined learning objectives and engaging activity plans.
Scoilnet supports Primary and Post-Primary teachers in sharing and finding useful resources for the classroom. Students will be introduced to seabed mapping, map-making, geology, our marine atlas and even our marine history as we look at the stories behind our fascinating shipwrecks and much more besides.
