One of the great things about working in the university, is that we get to hear about the interesting research that our colleagues do. Now you can do the same. Over the summer, our friends in Geography and Computing are running family workshops as part of their research, and they’d love for you to come along and find out what they do.
David Verwij is running crafting workshops as part of his research into the ‘Internet of Things’ (no electronics involved). And as a special treat he is offering Stroopwafels – a delicious Dutch caramel biscuit.
Monday 23rd July and Thursday 26th July between 1pm and 4pm at Ampersand Inventions in Newcastle.
