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.
See the event page for more details.
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.
