Exploring Hull 2017 with student voice during Global Entrepeneurship Week

We took Research and Play to the Guild Hall this week.

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week we collaborated with the teams from major projects at Hull City Council and the City of Culture to challenge primary-aged children with STEM to STEAM learning activities.

Focusing on Hull 2017 as a smart city, we used smart technology to explore cultural icons and ‘fascinating fact finding’.

Using proximity sensors and circuits, created with electric paint and Bare Conductive’s Touchboard, children from primary schools across the city triggered sounds to find out more about their home city; past, present and future plans.

Fundamental to the day was the opportunity to capture student voice and actively involve children in activities using innovative tech.
