Kids’ University at firstsite

Essex University and firstsite gallery in Colchester are running an event together.

Come and visit the Kids’ Uni!

Come along to an exciting day of lectures and activities for 7 to 11 year olds and find out what happens at the University of Essex!

The day of lectures and activities will run from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 26th May 2012 at the firstsite gallery in Colchester. And the best bit is, the whole day is absolutely free!

What’s happening?

Eight exciting and interactive mini lectures, between 20 and 30 minutes long. Loads of activities including seeing your brain waves on a computer, looking at live sea creatures through a microscope, having a go at acting and filming and being on a mock jury, plus quizzes and colouring. The chance to get a Kids’ Uni certificate and have your graduation photo taken.

The event will be taking place in the fantastic new firstsite gallery in the heart of Colchester. You will get to experience what a real University lecture may be like in the 190 seater auditorium, plus get to wander round the exciting selection of stalls in this stunning art gallery building.

Children’s University

The event has been validated by the Children’s University, which is a national organisation that enhances young children’s lives with exciting and innovative activities and experiences. If your child is already involved in the Children’s University, you can bring along your passport to be stamped on the day.

The event has been organised by seven members of staff through the University’s Essex Futures programme. For more information on the day, or if you would like to know more about the University or Essex Futures visit the Kids Uni website.

Although this event is free you do need to book a place.
