SPARCs – UCD Outreach

SPARC is a UCD Teaching and Learning initiative to support  joint student and staff projects whose goal is to make UCD a better place to learn, work and live by coming up with an idea that will enhance or improve some aspect of university or community life. 2015 is SPARC’s first year. The four successful teams presented their projects on Friday:

LabView 360 – a virtual tour of the labs in the Conway Institute. Media Services had an advisory role in this project – helping with the selection and use of cameras and software. See our previous post

Bringing Back the Bees – reintroducing a bee colony to the Belfield campus and the development of an associated module

Maths Sparks – Problem-solving workshops to engage students in DEIS (disadvantaged) schools – making use of card tricks and games

Outreach Archaeology – Engaging primary school pupils with archaeology through the use of artefacts
