Learn more about Artificial Intelligence!
Who are smarter, people or machines? What is intelligence anyway? Your child will get the opportunity to learn about these issues while playing a code-breaking game called ‘Fruit Salad Mastermind’! This free, interactive online gaming event is being hosted by the University to help young people to build an understanding of human and artificial intelligence. The challenge is to crack a hidden code by making guesses and getting feedback. This event is open to children ages 8 and up and takes place on Tuesday 30th November. To book your place click here.

STEMtastic is a virtual, all-day event for young people aged 11 – 18, who are interested in finding out more about STEM subjects for future career opportunities! Hosted by the Virgin Money STEM Outreach Programme, this event will have five workshops that focus on how STEM subjects apply to a range of roles such as cybersecurity, IT, and data analytics in business! It takes place on Wednesday 8th December, and is to inspire young people to pursue careers in STEM, to address the shortage of skills that the UK is facing in these industries.
