University offering free online home learning tutorials and activities for kids and teens in Coventry

Editorial Correspondent 10th Feb, 2021 Updated: 10th Feb, 2021

FROM A-level geography seminars to online tutorials in everything from pop-up art to doodling designs and 3D design, Coventry University is offering online home learning support for school pupils of all ages.

As many colleges and sixth forms are among those largely closed, the university is offering recorded on-demand webinars for Years 12 and 13 pupils to supplement their learning.

The sessions are designed to provide real insights into university study as well as tutorials and advice on things like UCAS applications and writing personal statements.

Natalie Smith, Coventry University’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, said: “Helping our communities in a time of need is paramount and we’re excited to be able to offer such a range of educational resources that will surely be invaluable to those whose education has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Using technology and digital innovation, we’re pleased to be able to expand our offering to accommodate learners of all ages at such a crucial time.”

Those studying A-Level Geography can also join seminars delivered by Coventry University academics, focusing on the syllabus and the university’s human and physical research.

For those aged 16+ the university’s city centre resource FabLab Coventry is running online courses to enhance digital and manufacturing skills, including tutorials on how to make 2D and 3D digital images.

Young people from primary through to secondary school interested in STEM topics from vehicle engineering to propeller technology can use Coventry University’s Lanchester Interactive Archive to access interactive games, worksheets, quizzes and engaging videos.

And for children with a passion for arts and crafts, Coventry University’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities has developed more than 15 online ‘isolation art’ tutorials covering everything from pop-up art to doodling designs here.

The Lanchester Interactive Archive also hosts a monthly sketch club for artists of all ages.
