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)
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.
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.

Despite welcome changes in the way we think about women’s health and wellbeing, nevertheless, in a recent STUC survey, 32% of respondents said that menopause was treated negatively in their workplace and 63% reported that it was treated as a joke. This can’t be good for women experiencing menopause, for girls and young women looking ahead to menopause, or for supportive colleagues and family members of all ages and genders. Inspired by (but not a part of) the Menopause Café movement the Invisible Women event is an open invitation to talk, listen and learn about menopause.
