‘Merry Multimedia’ event for school pupils

In the spirit of the Christmas season, Robert Gordon University's School of Computing is inviting secondary school pupils from across the region to join them for a very special lecture this week entitled ‘Merry Multimedia'. The event will take place at the University's St Andrew Street Building in two one-hour slots, at 11am and then again at 2pm, on Friday 11 December.

The School of Computing hosts a Christmas Lecture for secondary school pupils every year. This time round, whilst demonstrating the creative use of computer software to generate impressive multimedia videos, the focus is on merriment. Pupils will be invited to participate fully in the creation of a video which will be produced during the lecture and viewed at the end of the event. Facilities will then be made available for them to download to their mobile phones for their friends to see.

David Davidson, Associate Head of the School of Computing, said: "The emphasis will be on fun, with some audience participation. We hope the event will inspire interest and give some serious insight into the capability of modern computing systems and their ability to generate special effects."

Light refreshments will be provided after each lecture. For more information, please contact Ann Gardner on 01224 262700 or email
