08 Jun Unboxing Manufacturing gets the Green Light
“Unboxing Manufacturing” is one of the projects to receive funding through the SFI Discover Programme. Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR), I-Form, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Confirm, the SFI Research Centre for Smart Manufacturing will work in collaboration with Our Lady’s Hospital School located in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin to co-design and co-create pedagogical workbooks and kits that provide their students with the opportunity to engage actively with Manufacturing and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects.
The outcome of Unboxing Manufacturing is that children and adolescents will be encouraged to develop skills key to the Irish science curriculum and experience STEM activities in a fun and educational environment.
IMR’s Educational Outreach Program Lead, Isabel Meza said:
“We are delighted to have been granted SFI funding for our project Unboxing Manufacturing. This funding will enable us to broaden the participation and equity of access in STEM by co-creating and co-designing high-quality educational workbooks that meet the purpose of enriching the learning experience of the children attending Our Lady’s Hospital School. It is truly an honour to be working with I-Form, Confirm and Our Lady’s Hospital School on this project. It is quite an amazing team! This wouldn’t be possible without them, especially the teachers who are doing their best to bring this type of initiative to children in the school.”
