A visit to the ID2015 Design Hub will provide the young people in your class with an exciting and enjoyable encounter with high-quality design and cultural experiences. The ID2015 Design Hub gives students and teachers an opportunity to explore their creativity and learn new skills by working with professional designers. Our aim is to allow students to nurture their curiousity in an inspirational, yet structured setting.

Gallery visits are facilitated by educational staff, who are trained to encourage group participation and discussion, ensuring that students engage, contribute their own ideas and think about concepts within the exhibition.

PRIMARY SCHOOLS:

Tailored tours and workshop activities specially created for schools with valuable curricular links explore the stories of objects and designers, examining their ways of thinking, materials, tools, processes and how the objects are used.  The ID2015 schools programme connects creativity and innovation at an early stage of student development. Our schools programme is designed to build skills, develop competencies and support creative learning for teachers and their students, but most importantly, it gives students the chance to use their imagination. Learning outcomes include: Observation - Discussion - Growing awareness of design - Practical making skills - Reflection

YOUNG DESIGNERS TOOL KIT:

This educational resource has been produced by Irish Design 2015 to support Primary School children’s understanding of the impact of design in our daily lives. It is designed as a STEM resource, exploring the use of maths and science to address real-world challenges and problems; and reflects current thinking of integrating art and design within STEM projects. The toolkit is developed as project-based way of learning allowing students to understand and appreciate the relevancy of their work to the world around them. It aims to inspire curiosity about design; encouraging children to think about how things work and how we use them. The selected objects are familiar home or school items, which are used everyday: Paper Clip – Beverage Carton – LEGO – Coat Hanger – Egg Carton – Light Bulb – Ballpoint Pen – Clothes Peg

YOUNG DESIGNERS TOOL KIT supports integrated curriculum learning, drawing on curricula elements across SESE, Maths and Visual Arts. It particularly connects with Primary School curricula elements of the SESE Science Designing and Making as well as the Visual Arts Construction.
