FACT Learning project nominated for Education Innovation Award!
FACT's work with school children and Veterans has been nominated at an annual awards show in Manchester this week. Anna Kronenburg, FACT's Education Coordinator tells us a little more about the project.
28 February 2014
"Last year we worked with Year Five students at Holy Cross Catholic Primary school to create two animations as part of the city-wide Battle of the Atlantic commemorative events.
The students met two local Atlantic Star veterans who had worked with animator Anne Wilkins to re-tell their stories with their animations. The finished products were fantastic and were displayed at the Merseyside Maritime Museum and screened at FACT.
We are are so proud of all the students involved and very excited that the project has been recognised!"
