The exhibition is focused on the experimental side of creating an artwork based on a traditional approach.
Research has shown that walking can help to focus the mind and improve memory. It also helps us to stay on task for a longer period of time. For these reasons we would like to invite you to walk with us while practicing and learning some Spanish. This workshop is also an opportunity for students to explore their own learning while doing some physical activity. (NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)
It is mesmerising the world of crystals that lurks in surprising places around us. Have you ever asked yourself, where can I find them? How do they form and what is actually going on? Come and create your own microscopic crystalline compositions under the guidance of molecular biologist and crystallography artist Waad Albawardi. Learn more from soft matter physicist, Carmen Morcillo Perez about the physics behind the different crystals that emerge.
What does the delicate wing of a bee look like up close? Or the structure of a fungus? Join biologists to use different types of microscope to look closer at samples from biological research and nature. Then, express your scientific observations in a different way: create a collage in a giant petri-dish or a marbled art-work of your favourite sample or close up detail.
Secret messages have existed for centuries.
From the use of invisible inks and messages hidden in plain sight to the use of military grade encryption, people have always wanted to hide their secrets. In this special Festival of Creative Learning workshop we will look at exactly how we can do that, with one essential twist: There will be no computers.
So bring your pens and papers, your folding fans and your lemons as we delve into the art of sending and receiving secret messages.
Techniques will include:
News articles can be persuasive, manipulative, informative or just plain wrong. Without being omniscient, how can we tell the difference between an article we should trust, and one that we should discredit? In this workshop, learn to read the newspaper like a mathematician by evaluating the validity of arguments, understanding statistics and spotting fallacies.
Collaborative workshop to create a new adult colouring book inspired by over 40,000 images published by the University's Centre for Research Collections (CRC) under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY).
Combining both analogue and digital processes participants will learn key skills to transform photographs from the collection into new artworks.
Attendees will be encouraged to print their contribution and colour them in with materials provided. The event will conclude with an informal competition with small prizes for the winners.
This event is for non-security experts.
You will learn how to read URLs and easily recognise phishing from legit ones. Also, you will learn how to manipulate them using the same tricks phishers use and then practice distinguishing phishing from trustworthy ones. Using this approach, you will understand phishers’ capabilities.
