JA Local Program / Organisation: JA Ireland


Trough seeking knowledge about their local community students discover challenges they can use their creativity and entrepreneurial skills to solve. They work in groups and they have to use their network to find good solutions to the challenge they have decided to solve. The students work throuh 5 phases:

  1. Detective - by conducting a survey of their own environment, students look for issues related to the theme of clean energy that they feel are particularly important, inspiring and interesting;
  2. Now I've got an idea! - individually and in groups, students work to develop solutions to their identified issues;
  3. Now what? - they choose a key research question they want to study and then link with other groups making the same choice in order to develop a plan for finding and realizing solutions;
  4. This was it! - students prepare to present their project and their SMART solutions to parents and other members of their local community;
  5. The way forward - reflection on what has been learnt and the value and usefulness of the solutions.
