Discover your local university with Uni4U day

Children aged between seven and 14-years are invited to take part in the Children’s University Uni4U programme at University Centre Peterborough on Saturday, May 11.

Running from 10am until 1pm on the Park Crescent Campus, they will have the opportunity to attend a university lecture and participate in a variety of subject tasters that include:

• Small animal care

• Sports science

• Video production

• Motor vehicle and engineering

• Archaeology

• Education and teaching

• English and creative writing

• Computing and many more

The day is FREE to attend and begins at 10am with a welcome lecture for parents and children including the opportunity to win a great prize for the winner of UCP’s own University Challenge Quiz. All tasters and activities are free.

Children can gain valuable hours towards their CU Passport and graduation by participating in the educational workshops on offer.

Liz Knight UCP Academic Director said: “The series of events that we have delivered for the Peterborough Children’s University since November have been well received.

“Our intention is to encourage children to see the connections between subjects and careers and why it is beneficial to work hard and study for a degree. So if they want to become an archaeologist or designer or teacher they should come and spend the day with us.

“We hope to provide an exciting and challenging approach to learning. It is also important for children to realise that learning and the acquisition of knowledge and skills does not only have to happen in the classroom. The parents that attend normally have a good time as well.”

Bookings can be made by contacting the University centre on 0845 196 5750 or by emailing Walk-ins on the day will be welcome and parents will need to attend if children are under the age of 11.
