Festival Assistants limber up to launch TechFest http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/news/release.asp?newsID=2188
Aberdeenshire Council announces that TechFest will be taking place in September. With more events, workshops and shows than ever, Aberdeen’s annual festival of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), is set to attract over 25,000 visitors between September 9 and 27.
One of its aims is to engage young people in the four main subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and encourage them to go on to follow a career which utilizes these skills by demonstrating that they are dynamic and fun and highly relevant in shaping how we live today.
This one-day event aims to share the learning from Co-Create, a Scotland-wide arts project for Glow, the world’s first national schools intranet. See below for details on how to reserve a place.
Co-Create is a pioneering initiative which has brought together schools, Creative Scotland-funded arts organisations and other partners in ten online collaborations using Glow, new media technology and imaginative, high quality arts to create exciting and relevant teaching materials and experiences to support the implementation of Curriculum for Excellence.
This event will give practitioners from both the arts and education sectors direct access to in-depth case studies from Co-Create participants and partners on how they have used Glow to develop innovative and creative approaches to learning and teaching.
If you have not already reserved a place and would like to, or for more information on the programme, please email Glow Admin: firstname.lastname@example.org, using Co-Create: Sharing the Learning as the subject header.
Co-Create is funded through a partnership between Learning and Teaching Scotland and Creative Scotland’s National Lottery Fund.
