UC’s mini-campus for Park(ing) Day on 18 September
As part of International Park(ing) Day, we had well over 100 people interact with us throughout the day and engage with the cool things that are going on at UC in teaching and research
International Park(ing) Day was coordinated locally by Gap Filler and CHCH101 students, and the UC Community Engagement Hub who organised a UC mini-campus across four parking spaces on Victoria Street. Lectures were delivered by Tom Matthews (UC Management) and Kara Kennedy (UC English) and a display of Antarctic gear was hosted by Gateway Antarctica postgraduate students Gabriela Roldan and Peter Taylor.
An interactive art station was facilitated by CHCH101 teaching assistant Felicity Powell, and basketball shots, golf swings, and vertical jumps were analysed by UC PE and Sport lecturer Jenny Clarke.
