Campus Experiences for Kids

During the October school holidays the Children’s University team ran 5 campus experience events at UC, Lincoln University and ARA. These experiences allow children and their parents the opportunity to participate in fun, educational activities on campus.

The two UC experiences were hosted by the College of Arts and the College of Science and activities included a drumming workshop, exploring the Teece Museum, learning about the brain and communication, checking out biological sciences displays and an activity with the Centre for Entrepreneurship. Thank you to the academics and students who ran the activities.
