Congratulations to everyone who won an award at the 2019 Schools' Competition, which took place on Friday 28 June 2019 at Anglia Ruskin University.
My Smarter Essex, Tue 15 Oct 2019 16:00-19:30, The College at Braintree
My Smarter Essex is returning to Braintree, with a second run of "The Internet: is it Good For Us?" which was last held at Anglia Ruskin University in November 2018. We are now taking bookings for this event.
We know that some students and schools were unable to make the previous event so this is an excellent opportunity to take part. The Braintree location is also intended to ease travel for schools based towards the north of Essex.
Sticking to the new format trialled previously, this session will interactively examine how data, connectivity and artificial intelligence will influence our health.
We have limited spaces for attendees and places must be booked in advance, please contact us to book. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
A Research Opportunity at the Essex Record Office for Master’s or Ph.D. Students Interested in the History of Science and Technology
Within the varied holdings of the Essex Record Office (ERO) are a number of collections of value for researching the history of science, technology, engineering and medicine. These include over 100,000 photographs from the Marconi Company, dating from the 1890s to the 1980s.
In collaboration with the British Society for the History of Science (BSHS), the ERO is offering the chance for a Master’s or Ph.D. student to spend four weeks (or equivalent part-time) investigating the potential of collections held at ERO for research in science, technology and engineering subjects, and to raise awareness of and engagement with particular records – primarily the Marconi Photographic Archive.
