The subject matter is varied, reflecting the variety of research which takes place at UEA. Each year the aim is to present one session from the humanities and one from science. The sessions are highly interactive, with children encouraged to participate by answering questions and taking part in live demonstrations on stage. Children are rewarded for participation with prizes and applause. The material is delivered through a variety of channels, including paper hand-outs, on-screen presentations, live demonstrations and video and audio content. This ensures that different learning styles are catered to. The children are surveyed at the event using simple, colourful evaluation cards. The parents/guardians of the attendees are also surveyed electronically by email after the event. This feedback is collated and analysed to inform the planning of the following year’s event.
