CAS Yorkshire and the Humber (University of York)

CAS Yorkshire and the National STEM Centre invite all primary teachers with an interest in Computing to attend this event.

This CAS Hub meeting provides an opportunity for primary teachers from the region to get together and share their experiences of teaching computing in schools, as well as receive some free training!

We'll start off with a 'meet and greet' session at 5.00 during which we'll all get to know each other. 

 - Nick Negoita will talk about his experiences with the Digital Citizenship Curriculum and the resources he has found useful (including Digital Passports and Digital Compass).
 - Mike Freeman (from the University of York) will introduce his 3D printed robots which are controlled by micro:bits.  We hope this may stimulate some discussion about how to implement the control element of the KS 2 curriculum.

 - Martin Coleman will talk about his experience of planning with the primary curriculum to lead on to a discussion about the challenges and successes attendees have experienced in their own schools.

 - David Tidman from ict4c will talk about e-safety and the training and services he can provide to support this.

Following this, there'll be an opportunity to share the 'highs and lows' of the academic year, and suggest ways that CAS might be able to support you in the coming years.


By train

It is significantly easier to arrive by train and then take a bus or taxi. The National STEM Learning Centre is only a 15 minute taxi journey away from York train station, making this the ideal way to travel regardless of where you're travelling from. 

By bus

A bus service runs from the train station to the University of York approximately every 10 minutes (FTR: No 66 or Unibus No 44). The scheduled journey time from the train station to Heslington is 20 minutes. Find out more about getting around York by bus.

By taxi

Ask for National STEM Learning Centre, Hull/York Medical School or the University of York's Campus North car park.

By bike

There are abundant cycle tracks and 'bike parks' available on campus.

By car

We strongly recommend that you use public transport to get to the Centre. Parking at the University is extremely limited and it is significantly easier to arrive by train and then take a bus or taxi.

The nearest Pay and Display is the North Car Park - please note it is often full. Parking is charged at a rate of £1 per hour or £6 per day, and is free at weekends and between 6pm and 8am. The machines only accept coins, but payment can also be made by mobile phone.
