The remote sensing module at this school is likely to have a significant impact on the educational curriculum in Ireland. The teaching is special in that it does not simply dump the subject on the students from their local archaeologist Kevin Barton, but integrates it into departments throughout the school. The programme is really quite magnificent and meeting the team in Dublin a few weeks ago was a joy ;o)
On the kite aerial photography side, other Counties in England and Scotland are now showing interest too along with regional heritage groups, which host activities for their local schools.
