Event description

Description

Please note: The date of this event has now been changed to Thursday 4th October.

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

Theme: The Antikythera Mechanism: The oldest computer

Speaker: Professor Xenophon Moussas

Programme:

  • 5.00-6.15pm Optional mEat & Greet in The Grey Friar Optional meeting 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.
  • 6.20-6.30 5 Minute Walk to Darwin Theatre - or skip the 'mEat & greet' and arrange to meet us at Darwin.
  • 6.30-8.00pm Lecture - We'll attend the lecture together as a group, more information here and here. We already have a group booking, so separate registration is not required.
  • 8.00pm Departure - Public event finishes
  • Later - You may choose to join us for refreshments and geeky speak for some post-event discussion

Important: This is an 18+ only meetup and is independently organised by Alan O'Donohoe and friends. Our meetup is neither organised by, nor endorsed by UCLan. We will be attending a public event listed here online which you are at liberty to make your own independent arrangements for instead of registering here.
