The pupils will be given a tour of the university’s media centre at Brayford Pool and will get a chance to see graduating students’ Media Production degree show at 11am on Wednesday 24th May.
They will have an interactive tour of one of the TV studios and will visit radio studios, newsrooms and edit suites.
The eight-week project aims to encourage parents to support their children in completing tasks or homework outside of school time.
Instead of offering a traditional homework club the project gives children the opportunity to explore their local environment through play.
The organisers hope that this type of project will lead to more children participating in higher education in later life.
The visit will take place between 11am and 12 noon in the MHAC (media) building at the Brayford Pool campus on Wednesday 24th May.
Photographers are welcome to attend. To make the arrangements contact:
