Sensing in Summertime
Time & Location
About the Event
This Sensing in Summertime edition of Seed Scholars’ Gather & Grow videos will consist of 6 sets of videos.
Each set will highlight a different one of our 5 core senses, with the 6th set highlighting an array of new senses scientists have more recently exposed. Each of the 6 sets of videos will be composed of 2-5 minute how-to and activity inspiration videos, presented with Susan McCarthy and supported by Creative Ireland Westmeath.
The short clips seek to engage families in different nature-based ways to elevate their sensory awareness whilst connecting with their local environment, each other, and the wider community. As a follow up to each set, Seed Scholars will send out a google form to participants that requests artifacts and insights acquired through participation in the sensory activities, thereby compiling a bank of collective Co. Westmeath sensory memories.
