NUI Galway event will explore how to nurture innovation through play
12 October 2017
NUI Galway, in conjunction with Blackstone LaunchPad, is to hosting its first-ever Innovation at Play Symposium on Thursday, 26 October.
The event will offer a variety of ‘hands on, minds on’ workshops (from story-telling through sound, mask making, reflection through drama and innovation through Lego serious play) to explore how the spirit of innovation can be nurtured through playful methodologies.
A spellbinding one woman live interactive show, the Ada Ada Ada performance will tell the story of Ada Lovelace, the daughter of Lord Byron and the world’s first computer programmer, using wearable technology.
This one day experiential symposium will feature keynotes from award-winning game designer Brenda Romero, and astrophysicist Dr Iain MacLaren, director of CELT at NUI Galway.
This inclusive event will also facilitate a fireside panel and an intergenerational conversation on innovation and the contributions that each generation can make, truly embracing the belief that innovation is the calling card of the future. The event is open to those working in industry as well as university staff and students.
