Dr. Veronica McCauley, Lecturer in Science Education, organised a Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) event in the School of Education, NUI Galway to showcase an abundance of online teaching resources for teachers. 

Local science teachers from the Galway branch of the Irish Science Teacher's Association (ISTA) network and their Chairperson, Dee King, attended.  Also in attendance were student science teachers from the Professional Masters of Education (PME) programme.

Dr. Stephanie Nelson (Queens University Belfast) and John O’Donoghue (Trinity College Dublin), National Education Coordinators for the RSC facilitated this event.

The Royal Society of Chemistry provided a wealth of online teaching resources.  The 90 minute workshop provided an oportunity for science teachers to learn how to find the best resourcesin the shortest time.  Time was provided to assess the suitability of these resources, and everyone found something they could use in class the next day.  The newest developments were also showcased.  This workshop was aimed at everyone from trainee to experienced teachers, and was interactive and informal.  Both Junior and Senior Cycle resources were reviewed on the evening and a bundle of freebies were provided to each teacher.
