A Magic Roundabout – Got-a-Head? – Ages 8-11

Ages 8-11

Want to Monkey (Bar) around designing something magic as you add a bit of Zip (Wire) to your imagination. Join us for a-Maze-ing creativity as you Swing between Deep-Sea Slides and a Wild West Chute-Out.  Blast off your brain to go Roundabout a whirlpool or a black hole.

Learn how to use the QWERTY® staged thinking technique to design a fabulous themed playground.  You will be devising your own playground as we go along, which you can then draw or build (in the form of a 3D model) afterwards.

Health warning: This could seriously improve your thinking skills!

Session Presenters

Mark and Rowena from Got-a-Head?


Rowena Love and Mark Lawrence are a husband-and-wife team with a background in education and software development.  They are passionate about helping children to think more effectively, and not just in an academic setting.  Enhancing children’s creativity and confidence through effective cognitive strategies is at the heart of what they do.  QWERTY® is one of their key techniques, along with tools they call Forget-Me-Nots, which you will learn about in their sessions (along with loads of practical examples). You can read more about them and their company Got-A-Head®? on their website  https://www.got-a-head.com/
