About the Science Education Resource Hook Series
This Hook Series offers science educators a collection of videos that capture novel and engaging aspects of each science topic. Individual chapters contain a video file embedded within explanatory text, providing the viewer with an investigation methodology, the scientific theory behind the hook, guidance on how the hook can be incorporated into a lesson/lecture, associated questions, cross curricular links, and literacy & numeracy suggestions.
This first hook series, co-funded by the National University of Ireland, Galway, Bright Ideas Initiative and An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta & Gaelscolaíochta, consists of a set of 3 iBooks (also available in the medium of Irish), primarily directed at junior cycle level, although with application at lower and higher tiers of science education.
Scoilnet.ie has facilitated and supported the production of the Science Hooks website.
