Engaging with schools and teachers
The new autumn school term sees the Imagineering teams on the road and spreading the word around the country.
The first event was the Movers and Makers in Coventry. This is a new initiative for Coventry that supports teacher-led, arts-based innovations that improve children’s learning and development in primary school. Imagineering took a stand at this twilight conference at the Herbert Museum for teachers, arts practitioners, engineers and educationalists - a practical, interactive event that placed the arts as a central learning tool for all subjects. The Imagineering team highlighted how various elements of the National Curriculum could be met through its projects and nine schools indicated they wanted to know more.
Shortly following this is the Malvern Festival of Innovation. Imagineering is taking part on the second day of this week-long event at the Next Generation Innovators day at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern. This annual event attracts pupils from secondary schools across the Midlands who will have the opportunity to engage in exciting STEM activities laid on by major institutions, manufacturers and engineering organisations based in the region.
Similarly, Imagineering is also sending a team to the Scarborough Science & Engineering Week, another annual event providing fun STEM activities for primary and secondary pupils, this time in Yorkshire. With activities provided by companies and colleges, again young people can also learn about exciting careers available in science and technology.
A busy and exciting time!
