Media Innovation Studio Dispatch 2nd June

Mark Lochrie and Debbie Dearnley have been keeping kids and parents happy this week with a series of littlebits themed half-term activities at the Harris Museum. Great STEM fun that is always well received. The workshops are so popular that the workshops at the  Lancashire Science Festival at the end of the month are already booked up! Extra credit goes to Debbie who was on her feet for so long even after completing the Manchester Half-Marathon

But if you’re looking for something to do at the festival, there are some places left on Jack and Oliver’s Creative Composition Workshop which is also happening in the Studio.

It’s been a busy week for Mark who spent last weekend at the OnCreate Symposium, part of the Lincoln University’s Festival of Creativity talking about making and collaborative Working Practices. If you want to know what he said, you can check out a live stream of his presentation.

Its always nice to see what colleagues from the School of Journalism, media and performance are up. It’s even better when its so current like Amy Binn’s work using machine learning to analyse Twitter for peoples attitudes to their MP’s. You can see more results from the early stages of the study at Love Hate Politics

In the space

A quiet week in the space this week which was was an opportunity to do a little housekeeping ready for a couple of busy weeks ahead. It was also a chance to take stock of who has been using the room and add it to our list of studio data which appears on the front page of the studio website.

Things that caught our eye….

Until next week, given everything that is going on in the world, take Martin Creed’s advice.

You don't have to share, but we would be happy if you did 😉
