WeCreate is a unique technology and creative workspace located in the Cloughjordan Ecovillage. Our DPSM workshops encourage pupils to use their imagination to creatively explore technological and environmental subjects.
Our learning spaces include a Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) with digital fabrication technology where pupils experience innovative machines and tools in action. Digital fabrication uses computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines to create, invent and explore.
Our interactive workshops use 3D printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, CNC routers and other prototyping tools such as Little Bits (a simple and fun electronics kit). Pupils are encouraged to solve problems both artistically and scientifically.
Pupils investigate a range of themes in the SESE / Science and Maths curriculum, and WeCreate provides access to leading-edge technology. Visiting DPSM schools participate in interactive activities and hands-on projects in an inspiring learning environment.
We are very excited to announce that we have developed a learning programme that incorporates the 17 UN Global Goals (Sustainable Development Goals) and the associated World’s Largest Lesson. Our Fab Lab workshops show how people of all ages can understand environmental issues, and develop solutions to help achieve these goals.
