Hands on History

Hands on History: 2 day history ‘camp’

Thursday 11 July & Friday 12 July, 10am - 4pm

Discover the National Library, find out what’s inside and what we do at this two day history ‘camp’ for post-primary students. Experience what it might be like to research in the library’s iconic reading room. Just bring a sense of curiosity about the past….as we attempt to take the mystery out of history research on day one.

On day two, get hands-on with interactive and digital technologies and find out how they can be used to creatively explore the past. Participants will get practical experience of virtual reality, green screen technologies, animation and more, while learning how to bring history to life. Day two is a partnership with The Nerve Centre, Northern Ireland’s leading creative media arts centre.
