Zoo to You – Education Programme

Some of the world’s most fascinating and unusual animals in your class room! Part of our “Conservation through Education” programme – learning has never been so much fun!


We are Proud to say we are one of Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover Centers for primary schools and have workshops tailored to address both SESE & Arts areas of the primary curriculum with a focus on inspiring biophilia. We also offer similar but more advanced workshops for secondary school students that fit in with the junior certificate and leaving certificate cycle curriculum, all curated to address the defined ‘Key Skills’.
