Knocknaheeney Learning Neighbourhood
was one of the first two Learning Neighbourhoods in Cork. The Neighbourhood secured funding to run a STEAM Education programme in Knocknaheenyin the 2016 school year. STEAM Education was formed by a group of individuals from backgrounds in industry, academia and youth education. It aims to
address the serious gaps which exist in the education system and the widening shortfall of highly qualified science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM)graduates.
This is an exciting initiative to support the education of young people in Knocknaheeny and create closer collaboration between schools and UCC, which
is one of the key aims of Knocknaheeny Learning Neighbourhoods.
