Success for WASPS at Magee

Hundreds of primary school children in the North West have enjoyed their first taste of university life, thanks to the success of the University of Ulster’s WASPS (Widening Access Skills in Primary Schools) initiative.

Now in its third and final year, the WASPS initiative delivered a series of ‘hands-on’ practical workshops for the youngsters at the Magee campus. The workshops were designed to encourage them express their creativity through technology and as part of the project, they had to create a short film to raise awareness about a particular subject.

The initiative was designed and delivered by Computing Science lecturer Dr Sandra Moffett and colleagues from the School of Computing and Intelligent Systems, Mairin Nicell and Anne Hinds, with support from PhD students, Jennifer Hyndman, Kerri McCusker and Kevin Meehan.
