Thingamabobas – online panel discussion

Children in Hong Kong Making a Scribble Bot

The University of Nottingham, Lakeside Arts has teamed with us, artists and primary schools in Hong Kong and in the UK to test proposed Education Pack content focused on Design Thinking and Tinkering. Supported by Arts Council England and British Council Spark 2021 Festival.

On Wednesday 20th October 2021 we will be joining artists form Hong Kong, and education professionals to discuss how we worked with children to help them build their own Thingamabobas.

Inspired by our installation Thingamabobas, we delivered a workshop programme in two schools, one in Hong Kong and one in Nottingham, to explore design thinking and tinkering. We worked in collaboration with Lakeside Arts at The University of Nottingham, Djanogly Strelley Primary School UK, Hong Kong artists Agnes Pang and Zoie So and Sam Shui Natives Association Huen King Wing School, Hong Kong.
We delivered 6 workshops to children aged 6-7 and 9-11 and presented our findings at Spark 2021. In conceiving Thingamabobas installation it was always our intention to create a complementary learning pack for schools focused on Design Thinking and Tinkering.

Join us at Spark 2021 online Festival
