Anglia Polytechnic University Summer School Kicks Off!

apu.gifThe Anglia Polytechnic University Summer School has officially started this week working with young people who’s parents have never been to University in an attempt to engage those who would not usually choose University as part of their future.
The programme is once again being run by Colin Elsey and will build on the 2002 project ‘The Future is Blue’. Film, photography and animation skills will be core to the work. The young people have been challenged to make an advert about life at University in an attempt to understand and target others who would not usually choose University as a way forward.

Skegness Lifeboat Station visited for Lifeboats.TV

18-20th February 2002
In Skegness we met Joel, the longest serving RNLI person in the country. Joel had been part of the lifeboat station since he was three years old. Joel’s father and grand father also served on the crew.

All the research conducted so far on this project has been done in conjunction with young people, exploring how creative use of technology could be used to enhance their learning, bringing the RNLI bang up to date with its uses of technology at the same time.
Watch a male crew member explain how the more cakes baked the worse the weather was.
