House of Circuits 

Our “House of Circuits” workshop is a fun, hands-on exploration of electrical circuits. Individual kits and scaffolded challenges allow children to explore, discover, and build up their understanding of current electricity and simple circuits.

Designed and delivered to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, the workshop covers in entirety the ‘Current Electricity’ curriculum objectives in the SESE Science Electricity & Magnetism Strand Unit for 3rd and 4th class. The workshop also works well with 5th class.

The workshop comprises of the following:

  • Workshop resources delivered to and collected from your school.
  • An individual workshop kit for each pupil in the class.
  • A 60 minute live online workshop (Zoom or equivalent) delivered by our Education Officer.
  • Available for 3rd, 4th & 5th Class* in 2021-2022.

Feedback from Teachers

‘Brilliant. Such a treat. Real science. Real equipment. Well explained.’

This was great. The class were fully engaged from the outset. Having their own individual box made a hugely positive difference. Covid restrictions played havoc with active learning, so this was truly wonderful.’

‘The boys in the class thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. There was a great mix of led activities and time to experiment. The equipment was very well organised and planned.’

‘Boxes were so well put together - very little work for class teacher to do before workshop - well impressed with the service.’

‘We all really enjoyed it. The pupils had several moments of 'wow' which was lovely! Couldn't fault the content - pitched perfectly with brilliantly organised resources.’

Lifetime Lab is a Cork City Council operated facility offering hands-on science workshops, activities and events to primary schools in the Cork area. This workshop has been developed with assistance from Science Foundation Ireland and is therefore heavily subsidised.
