  • How to make your own phone: A marketing workshop

    Marketers are the people who make us ‘Just do it’, ‘Think Different’ and know that M&Ms melt in your mouth not in your hand. As a marketer your job could involve understanding consumers and how they behave, developing new products or deciding the best way to distribute a product and how much to sell it for. 

    Our fun, interactive marketing workshops give students a taste of the typical activities undertaken by marketers. By the end, students will have a better understanding of why they might choose Apple over Samsung. They will never look at an advertisement, Facebook promotion or supermarket in the same way again!

  • What is your global footprint?

    This interactive session looks at our own habits and shows us a reflection of ourselves in the hope of making students aware of the impact of their own choices in the fight to lower carbon footprints.

    Students learn, discuss and add up their estimated footprint score to determine what their Earth Share is and how many earths we would need to host an entire population if we were all like them.

  • Could you win an election?

    Are all elections fair? Do they really act as the voice of the people? In this interactive activity, students are going to try to elect their ‘Class Champion’ using a variety of electoral models. Who will end up on top? What will they have to do to come out as the champion? Can they stop who they do not want to win?

    Through this workshop, students will end up with an understanding of how first-past-the-post and alternative voting systems work, along with how blocs form in societies, why two-party systems are prevalent in many countries and which system is best for them.
