||Must be a registered, qualified Irish teacher at the primary or secondary level in Ireland.
||Aimed at science, mathematics and geography teachers, covering theory and practical wind energy topics at the appropriate level, training is delivered as a hands-on, fun; four day course which includes a visit to a sponsor wind turbine site and a curriculum kit to use in teaching the material to students, which even includes a desk top turbine to be built in the classroom! Its a great idea for transition year students.
