Cancelled – What Is Data? – Make Your Own Motorised Emoji

March 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

‘What Is Data? ‘Make Your Own Motorised Emoji’ introduces the concept of data – what it is, how it can be used and positive and negative implications of this. It is a practical hands on experience where participants create motorised characters using open source data sets (we have collaborated with Creative Informatics at Edinburgh University to re-purpose Wallvis) which allows participants to combine their understanding of what data is with practical skills in manipulating it using facial recognition and a variety of materials, mechanisms, tools.

Delivered as of The Big Data Show – a 3 part project aimed at P7, S1 and S2 students to educate on cyber security and encourage young people to consider training and careers in ethical hacking.
