Programme Introduction

Known as the City of the Tribes and City of Festivals, Galway warmly welcomes people from both near and far to explore its cobbled streets and experience the lively atmosphere of buskers and performers singing and dancing on the street.

Galway STEAM programme is the perfect combination of learning 21st century skills in an authentic Irish environment surrounded by culture and nature, it will not disappoint!

Learner Profile

This programme is for learners from age 12-17 who are interested in improving the 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, creative problem solving and digital information through the medium of English. It gives them an engaging and meaningful context for developing these skills, through a programme that encourages them to engage with other cultures and explore the science, technology, engineering, arts and maths of the world around them in Galway, the only city along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

Learner Outcomes

Future Learningā€™s summer STEAM programme is about much more than incorporating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math into the afternoon activity programme. The STEAM workshops engage studentsā€™ creative and critical thinking skills in multi-sensory interaction with the physical world and help them develop the language to describe those experiences.

By the end of the course, participants will have

  • developed a greater understanding of the responsible and effective use of information and communication technology, fulfilling project team roles and how to use problem-solving skills to complete tasks creatively.
  • become more able to contribute to and facilitate exchanges between different cultures while also being more able to identify the cause of misunderstandings and work to repair them.
  • improved language competencies through exchanging information, expressing and justifying opinions and developing their ability to make complex arguments incorporating other ideas and responding to them
  • increased motivation and satisfaction in their works  through succesfully completing task such as collaborative projects and individual ePortfolios reflecting on their experience in Ireland and what they have learned  on their summer programme.
