Digital Day – Wednesday 20th February 2019

Fuse Media Centre, Prudhoe, 9.45am – 3pm

Come along to the very first digital day at Fuse Media Centre in Prudhoe. This exciting half term event will allow young people aged 9-12 and their parents/guardians to get an insight into different areas of STEM.

This full day event will consist of three key workshops:

Technology – take part in a range of different coding exercises and demonstrations, understanding the technology used and the development opportunities available.

Technology – step in to our state of the art TV Studio, with a behind the scenes look at how a professional green screen works while transporting yourself to some outstanding backgrounds.

Engineering – build a shelter with Northumberland Business Enterprise Partnership. This is a fun activity which is great for improving teamwork, problem solving and create thinking skills. Teams work together to build a free-standing shelter which the whole team must be able to fit under, using only the materials provided. The shelter must be water resistant, wind-proof, bug proof and comfortable. All shelters will be tested so you may get wet!
