One of the things we want to do at Brighton Mini Maker Faire is maker more makers. We love it when kids, parents, teachers, schools and other educational institutions get involved. So this year, we’re chuffed to have a new sponsor, the School of Education at the University of Brighton. Over to Jo to introduce themselves.
The School of Education at the University of Brighton is delighted to sponsor the Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2013. We are widely recognised for the quality of our initial teacher training, continuing professional development and research opportunities in education. We work closely with over 450 schools and colleges and a number of professional bodies, and according to the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted, 2010), we are one of the outstanding institutions in the country for the study of education. In the recent National Student Survey results (NSS 2013), the University of Brighton maintained its high position of overall student satisfaction.
As one of the largest leading providers of initial teacher training, we offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses that enable our students to train to teach across all age phases and subjects:
- Primary (3-11 years)
- Keystage 2/3 (7-14 years)
- Secondary (11-18 years): art and design, biology, chemistry, computer science, dance, design and technology, English, geography, modern foreign languages, physics, physics with Mathematics, physical education and religious studies
- Further education
Come and meet us at the Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2013. During this event you will be able to chat to our tutors, current and former students, and try out high tech equipment from our workshops (including 3D printers and robots).
