One of the key parts of the EdLab project is creating chances for interaction between students and local education projects. To increase the experience of different learning worlds our students have access to we invite local partners to Set Students A Challenge.
This Volunteering Fair was a quick way for groups and students to find out more about each other. They key for students to come up with appropriate responses to the challenges is for them to be able to find out in-depth information from the groups themselves about their needs and context.
Also the personal connection is great for firing enthusiasm and creating positive feedback loops! There were some very sparky students and representatives from groups there.
