School children experience immersive technology spaces
To support the Department for Education's STEAM agenda, the Faculty of Arts and Professional Studies, has started a programme of visits from school children across the region.
The visits are designed to challenge and investigate at the highest level but in a fun and interesting manner that appeals to school children, who are the next generation of university students, innovators and leaders.
Liverpool School of Art and Design and Liverpool Screen School had a joint visit from St Michael's Primary School, Aughton. The school’s digital leaders were particularly interested in seeing and using LJMU’s immersive technology spaces.
The school children were tasked with inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking, and academics were impressed by the pupils thoughtful risks and persistent problem-solving. The chidlren commented: "We had so much fun. It was like we were in our own movie.”
