INTERACTIVE DISPLAYS IN UNIVERSITY EXHIBITION

 

Visitors to the Lincolnshire Show next week will be treated to a range of interactive exhibits including Lego robots and ‘learn a language’ software in the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside marquee.

 

Free access to the Internet will be on offer at the annual show on Wednesday 21st June and Thursday 22nd June at the Lincolnshire Showground. Visitors will also be able to see models of the university’s new science facility and sports centre both currently under construction on the Lincoln campus.

 

Media Production students will film the highlights of the show  before broadcasting them in the marquee on the university’s hi-tech media equipment.

 

In previous years visitors have created newspapers with the help of journalism students and learned how to operate mixing desks used in recording studios.

 

The university’s education liaison team of Jacqueline Mayer and Karen Raynes is organising the marquee this year.

 

“There will be lots to see and do and visitors will have great fun with the hands-on displays as well as learning  all about what we have to offer,” said Jacqueline.

 

Also featured in the marquee will be displays by the Lincolnshire Business Development Centre and the Food Research Centre which is moving to the new science building from Grimsby in September.

 

The Lincolnshire Regional Access Centres, which work in partnership with the university, will also have a display in the marquee. 

 

Find the marquee just off the main ring at Avenue 8, Row D, stand 348.
