ECS at Science & Engineering Day - Saturday 13 March

Published: 11 March 2010

ECS will be making a strong contribution to this year's Science & Engineering Day which takes place on Saturday 13 March.

Dr Denis Nicole will be leading a team of ECS students who will be based in the Technology Zone in Garden Court, providing a whole range of exciting activities including games writing, electronic construction, race solar-powered boats, play scratch, compose electronic music, experience enhanced reality, and chase robots around the arena. There are plenty of activities for children of all ages taking place throughout the day.

The Murder Mystery returns again this year with a new scenario: Blood on the Library Floor! The event is devised by Dr Reena Pau of ECS, and brings together actors from the Nuffield Theatre and graduate students to create a unique event. It begins with a reconstruction of the events that led up to a murder, intended to draw children into the story and giving them the motivation and context to solve a set of clues using technologies such as robotics, solar power, codebreaking, audio technology and echo-location sound mazes. Bookings for the event (numbers are limited) can be made in advance, but it is also possible to book on the day at the Nuffield Theatre. The shows run at 11 am, 12.30 pm and 2 pm.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
