10th - 21st November 2018 | Sheffield Hallam University
What is DIMENSIONS?
DIMENSIONS is a showcase of work by Young Makers, nominated by teachers. It’s a chance to celebrate subjects in school which promote making, and reward talented young makers.(Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Barnsley, Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire, Bolsover, Derbyshire Dales. Bassetlaw)
DIMENSIONS showcases work by young people, nominated by teachers. For the pupils, their teachers, technicians and families it is a chance to celebrate and feel proud of a fantastic achievement.
Visitors will see exceptional work by pupils in the Sheffield Region and help raise awareness of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) and Design related education in schools. The setting of the Hertha Ayrton STEM Centre at Sheffield Hallam University provides a clear link between subjects in schools and higher education which lead to related creative careers.
Work is professionally displayed and open to the public.
We celebrate the work by inviting pupils, their families, teachers and technicians to a special event on the opening night of the show.
During the evening guests are treated to canapés from our 'Create a Canapé' competition finalists. This is a region-wide competition open to year 10 and above. Pupils design and enter their recipes; if short-listed pupils get to make them in our specialists kitchens overseen by professional chefs.
How do I enter work?:
Teachers may nominate pupil work from any Key Stage which they feel have produced an outstanding piece of made work.
Work can be anything which the pupil has made in Art, Design, Technology, Craft, Engineering, Electronics, or any other subject where the outcome is a physical artefact with a hand-made element, 2D or 3D.
Take a photo Please take a good quality photo showing as much of the work as possible.
