University of Wales Trinity Saint David UWTSD
Rewise Learning, in conjunction with Reaching Wider UWTSD, have created a few projects with the aim of helping schools in South Wales learn in a fun way. I:Explore is a STEAM project providing students with the opportunity to build, decorate, and race mini cars. Whereas, I:Ganu is a music and singing workshop aiming to promote the learning of the Welsh language in schools.
What is Reaching Wider?
Reaching wider, a UWTSD organisation, aims to widen access into education across the whole student age range by organising learning and aspiration raising activities. Reaching wider asked Rewise Learning to help with the creation and delivery of some of these activities including I:Explore and I:Ganu.
I:Explore, a STEAM project, is a workshop designed for Year 10 pupils that provides them with the knowledge, skills, and materials to build, decorate, and race mini Drag Racer Cars. With the help of Rewise Tutors, students successfully built their own cars which allowed them to discover opportunities arising from studying STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) subjects. Information was also given on Further Education and Career pathways that relate to STEAM industries.
“The workshop was loads of fun! Everyone was really engaged and enjoyed taking part.”

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"The best thing about the music course was the way my class not only absorbed the learning content in a creative way, but the way it challenged them to step out of their comfort zone. The changes in confidence of some individuals has been nothing short of extraordinary"
