Festival of Learning- event ideas to inspire the younger generation

Thinking of a fantastic event idea aimed at the younger generation can be challenging. It can often be very helpful when the audience we are aiming at can give us inspiration, a great event idea for the younger generation came from an audience member at the last Café Scientifque.

Have you thought about running a child friendly forensics event at the 2015 Festival of Learning? This idea will create a hands on, entertaining and memorable day for children attending the festival and has also worked extremely well in previous years.

Incidentally, if you wish to gain inspiration in running this event idea, the next Café Scientifique will be looking at ‘Who Stole Christmas’ with a forensic themed talk in store on the 2nd December so be sure to mark the date in your diary.

Or perhaps you may be inspired to run a child friendly event in storytelling. Events with this theme have worked well in previous years with strong turn outs and positive feedback from attendees. This could really get a child’s imagination going and inspire them to improve their storytelling skills.

Now is a great time to start thinking about your event in order to get your proposal in for the 19th December deadline.

If you would like to get involved in the Festival of Learning in 2015, you can submit your proposal here or contact Naomi Kay to discuss how your research can translate into a memorable Festival of Learning event.
