Rediscovery Centre School Tours




The Rediscovery Centre is a creative and innovative educational space located in the unique Boiler House in Ballymun. We bring together the skills and expertise of artists, scientists, designers and craftsmen united in a common purpose of sustainability through resource efficiency and reuse.

Our Education Programmes include a range of engaging and interactive workshops based on hands-on enquiry and experiential learning that cover environmental topics and STEM ones. Each workshop features a presentation, a range of activities, games, and a feedback session to encourage the students to reflect on what they have learned throughout the workshop.

Workshops can be delivered in our education centre in Ballymun, or as outreach directly in your school or virtually.
