Discover Science Centres
About the Discover Centres Network
DPSM has a network of Discover Centres offering accredited workshops and outreach programmes for Primary schools on a range of themes encompassing Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Space. The network of Centres support schools in engaging in science education outside of the classroom in a curriculum relevant and inquiry based way and provides opportunities to meet scientists and engineers from a range of disciplines. Centres include the Zoo, national parks, interpretive centres, observatories, a fab lab and aquarium. Schools can gain credit towards STEP 1 of their Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Awards by visiting a Centre.

Please note: DPSM has accredited the specific workshops available for DPSM schools at these centres as being suitable for the DPSM programme. Science Foundation Ireland has no responsibility whatsoever for the centres other than the accreditation of the specific workshops. It is the responsibility of each school to satisfy itself that child protection, health and safety and other arrangements, including appropriate insurance covers, at a centre meet the school's policies.
