WIWOS has submitted a funding bid for the Lancaster research in a box grant.
‘Research in a Box’ is a loanable kit aimed at GCSE or A-Level school students that fits in with the appropriate curriculum and at the same time showcases resources used by LU researchers. The aim is to inspire the next generation of researchers and to aid in the transition of pupils from school to University.
Linda O Keeffe and Rebecca Louise Collins have designed a call to develop a tool kit for teenage girls in school that we hope will bring on board a number of female composers, sound designers, instrument makers and coders. Fingers crossed we get this. Our initial goal is to introduce girls to instrument building with the support of instrument maker Nina Richards.
