5. Web Resources for Students

Projects for the Discover Cork: Schools’ Heritage Project are to be colourful, creative, imaginative, have the student’s opinion and should gain publicity. Those are the threads that make a great project. Below are a few weblinks that are student friendly for all age groups and give ideas on project work.
