Bromley Summer School kicks off with Hal MacLean

Hal spent the day in the Bromley area working with partner schools on their Summer programme of activities. Bromley Learning Alliance, the organisation behind the initiative hires in Ultralab each year to set the summer challenge for young people with their region. Previously to working with the BLA Ultralab worked with SEEVEAZ (South East of England Virtual Education Action Zone), BLE’s staff moved from SEEVEAZ when SEEVEAZ reached the end of its natural working life.
It was SEEVEAZ that helped pioneer the first ever Ultralab digital creativity summer school back in 2000 so Ultralab are pleased to continue the working relationship withe the BLE team.
Hal worked with a group of 30 young people in the morning, and 30 in the afternoon.
Hal set the young people their Summer Challenge, which is to make a modern day interactive comic.
Initially Hal taught the young people how to animate and here are the first movies created in just one hour on the training day:
