Great job, fantastic day – thank you so much

Exhibitor Quote:
“Just want to say a huge thank you for inviting us to this fantastic event. We had so much amazing feedback as ever, but this time had a lot of enquiries from students wanting to either volunteer or intern with us. Two students in particular have already put their name down for our next two large UK events: Digital Kids and Cosmic Christmas, which I think is an amazing testament to the enthusiasm we saw at this event” Immersive Theatres

Learn by Design produced a student Rocket reflection board which encouraged students to reflect on their feelings and plans around higher education. Questions included:
> What schools subjects would you like help with?
> Are you considering Higher Education?
> What activities are missing in your school?

Students recorded their thoughts, which were displayed on the rocket board, giving insight and better understanding of possible learning pathways that can be enhanced in educating young people about Higher Education. The day was a huge success and students left enthused and motivated towards their next step in education.
