Description


We’re challenging the young people of Hull to use their digital making skills to make a smarter, more connected world.

How will you be able to use the tools from the Connected Hull project in schools and with community groups?

Connected Hull is based around a smart city initiative, using 'internet of things' sensors to collect data from different projects and locations across the city.

The city's LoRa network is now place, through Connected Hull, and we have collated a range of ideas and project devices that children from KS2+ will be able to code themselves.

Whilst projects will be build on progression of programming, Connected Hull is an opportunity to creatively solve problems and share solutions in a creative way across the curriulum.

Who is this event aimed at?

Teachers and educators of KS2 - KS5 with an interest in how technology and creativity can support innovative ideas and learning opportunities.

Their main curriculum focus could be art, music, PSHE, maths, geography, computing, music, D&T, science........Connected Hull is definitely a cross-curricular programme.

Software has been developed with an educational focus, to support teachers and learners to create projects and design their own new inventions. Teachers will be able to explore starter projects and develop their own idea across the curriculum.

Join us as we support children and students to play their role in building Hull as a smart city, and as cited in this NESTA report, from the ground up.

What story could your students share with environmental data such as temperature, humidity, movement or sound levels taken from their own community? What will be their focus or problem to solve?

It is estimated that the 'Internet of Things' will connect over 30 billion devices by 2020. Join us for this event which looks toward this future and brings together educators and digital innovators from across Hull for interactive discussion and networking opportunities.
