A still from a participant's animation
We received some great feedback after our Canterbury workshop. Everyone reported that they had a good time and were ‘very impressed’ with the project with the youth worker from Connexions reporting that the feedback they received was also very positive.
In particular, the young people liked:
- The hands-on activities including making the pinhole camera
- The light drawing sessions
- The tour of the science labs which showed them a real life application of light in an accessible way
We too, learned a lot from the participants and are looking forward to seeing them all again at the exhibition.
But there’s a lot of work to do before then with workshops confirmed at Southampton, Surrey and Staines.
See you soon,
The LightTAg team
The workshop continues to go well as it reaches its final day. Here’s another image from one of the young people which represents a real life story.
All involved are delighted with how it’s been going and with 100% retention rate, things are looking great for the remaining workshops too.
Wow, the Canterbury group have been very busy indeed! Here is just one of the fantastic light drawings created at the first LightTAG workshop. The workshop ends tomorrow before heading off to the next venue to meet another 12 young people. See more images on our Workshops page.

Yesterday Press and PR contacts headed up to Queen Mary, University of London to talk through our options for promoting the LightTAG project… and we all agreed that the images make a real impact! Watch this space for news about our touring exhibition and big launch event.
Having had such a great day with Tine and Kathryn when they came to show the SEPnet Outreach team how it all works I can really see the potential for this to grab the public imagination. Our team are already buzzing with sciency ideas for the project! And it was great to be so creative for the day.
I’m off to print out our images to put up in the office!
