Climate Action in Primary Schools (CAPS) : An Innovative STEAM Outreach Programme for Primary Schools

Climate Action in Primary Schools (CAPS) : An Innovative STEAM Outreach Programme for Primary Schools

Clare Education Centre, STEAM Education Ltd. and Environmental Artist Evelyn Sorohan have joined forces to collaboratively develop an innovative Climate Action for Primary Schools (CAPS) Programme.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. This project aims to design, develop, and pilot an innovative Outreach programme for primary schools based on climate change and action, that harnesses the arts as a foundation for a STEAM learning process on this complex and challenging area.

The overall goal of the CAPS programme will be to build climate action knowledge and capacity in primary teachers and pupils through creative, collaborative, critical, and innovative thinking about the causes and e!ects of climate change. Learning how to understand and deal with these issues, using the Arts as a launch pad to investigate, will promote attitudes of individual and collective responsibility towards planet Earth and develop environmental literacy in teachers and pupils alike.
