The RECEPTION & "SPEED GEEK"
Friday 16th June, 6pm - 10.30pm
The Speed Geek last year was a highlight so we've opted to repeat the format. A speed geek takes it's name from speed dating and is a highly immersive and fun way to be introduced to a whole range of new ideas for introducing computing in to our classrooms.
This event will start with a reception in the computer science building, inc. buffet food and refreshments.
Price: £15.00 (including reception buffet)
Please note a separate ticket will need to be purchased to attend the opening reception and speed geek this year.

The FEEDBACK from 2016
"Very good mix of workshops with enough choice to enable all attendees to experience a range of learning. "
"It was truely inspiring! There was a mega amount of information and ideas jam packed into all the sessions. Within the first hour I reckon I got more information and help than in ten years worth of college INSETs all added together"
"All the sessions I went gave me practical ideas that I could implement or build into schemes of work in the next month"
"My brain is overflowing with brilliant ideas!"
