Students in year 10 and 11 who are in need of motivation.
Our exciting Brookes Boxes showcase a variety of courses students could choose to study, giving a taste of what Oxford Brookes is all about. All of our sessions link to GCSE themes within the core subjects complementing the curriculum, as well as providing an insight into a range of new subjects.
Some examples of the Brookes Boxes available:
How mathematics can be applied to a range of different industries, focusing on the importance of maths for science, economics, computer science and engineering.
Design your own multi-purpose sports stadium for the 2022 Commonwealth Games! This interactive and competitive activity will give students the opportunity to develop an understanding of the architectural design process, from creating ideas from a brief to pitching their ideas to win the contract.
Exploring the importance of reflection in art using music visualisation. Students will reflect on how the music makes them feel and the images it conjures up, turning their thoughts and ideas into a sketch and a 3D paper sculpture.
A challenge-focused Animal Biology and Conservation workshop in which students delve into the issues surrounding re-wilding of endangered species. Students work as a team to pitch for funding to re-wild their species. They will need to problem-solve issues, such as finding a suitable habitat and an initial site for reintroduction for both the species and humans and argue why their species requires funding for re- wilding efforts.
