Event description

Description

Aims: A little like a school trip, this is a social gathering for a group of teachers and non-teachers with a common interest in STEM, Computer Science and Computing education (5-18 years) within a public community event. By joining our event, you will be able to indulge your interests and passion, forge friendships with others, while gaining some inspiration, insights, ideas & resources for activities to use with your classes or community.

Theme: Tekken and Fortnite - Whether you are a complete n00b or a serious gamer, you'll be made to feel very welcome and there will be plenty of interest for you at this community gaming event. We will have opportunities to talk to serious gamers who will reveal some of the magic of computer games to you, but better still - you'll able to play the games yourself. No previous knowledge, skill or experience of computer games is required - just the desire to know more.

Programme:

  • 5.00-5.45pm Optional mEat & Greet in The Grey Friar Choose to meet/eat before the public event, providing an opportunity for us to share news of events, projects, resources that support the teaching of #Computing in school and linking to the event theme. Plan to arrive early if you need to allow time for a drink/meal. If you have something interesting to share, please bring it with you.
  • 6.00-8.00pm Visit to Belong Gaming Arena - We'll visit the community event together, play Tekken and Fortnite, and talk to others to discover more about Games and Gaming culture throughout the evening. These links explain more: Tekken. Tekken Community Night. Fortnite a parents guide, Belong Gaming Arena.
  • 8pm Departure - Although the community night is open until 9pm, some of our group usually leave around 8pm or earlier, particularly when it's a school day the following day. You can choose to stay for as little or long as you wish.
