Community Based Learning With Second Year Chemistry Undergraduates - Piloting A Junior Scientist Badge With A Local Youth Service, Claire M. Mcdonnell Jan 2018

Community Based Learning With Second Year Chemistry Undergraduates - Piloting A Junior Scientist Badge With A Local Youth Service, Claire M. Mcdonnell

Posters

We developed a pilot syllabus for a Junior Scientist badge for 8-12 year olds. It involved interaction between 16 of our students and 9 young people from St Michael's Youth Project in Inchicore over 5 weeks. The inspiration came from work in the USA to promote science to girls by supporting scouts towards obtaining a chemistry badge. This is one of a series of community based learning (CBL) projects implemented as the 'lab' component of a 2nd year Professional Skills module for chemistry at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT).
