As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2017, we are providing a morning of activities for children and families based on our findings from two current European projects.
One project, Robo21C, aimed to develop skills and understanding of robotics and programming and enable primary school pupils to apply their newly acquired skills to become responsible, confident and creative users of ICT. The second project, PhenoloGIT is focused on designing, building and testing a collaboratively created educational environmental App and information platform for use on everyday mobile devices (phones and tablets with GPS).
Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of hands-on activities involving robots, photography and an interactive map developed in partnership with children and teachers around Europe.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only and queries should be directed to the Children's University on 01752 587967 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
