Half term Dinosaur crafts event for student parents

Posted by rmt22 at Jan 17, 2017 09:13 AM |
On Friday 17 February, primary and early secondary aged children of students are encouraged to join us on campus to find out more about prehistoric creatures.

Taking place between 1pm and 3pm in the Ken Edwards Building the afternoon of free activities will provide children with fun opportunities to create their own dinosaur eggs, learn about dinosaurs in Leicester and uncover some dinosaur bones for themselves. Drinks and biscuits will be provided.

The event, hosted by our Widening Participation team, is part of the University’s commitment to make juggling University and home life easier for our student parents looking to keep their children entertained during the February half-term. The free event also hopes to encourage young people to learn more about their environment and engage with it creatively.
