Imagination Pods in Residency

Imagination Pods in Residency

Ever wondered what your pupils could gain from an Imagination Pod? Come and find out!

We are inviting teachers and pupils to the Imagination Lab on 5 – 7 December to experience our Imagination Pods in residency. Bring a class from your school to explore and tinker with sound, senses and spaces through arts, science and digital technology.

We will be encouraging children to imagine new and existing worlds, both big and small. Throughout the day you will work with Institute of Imagination facilitators to build Big Worlds using our “Making Spaces” Imagination Pod and use arts, science and technology to explore Small Worlds with our “Looking and Exploring” Imagination Pod.

What will you do on the day?

The Lab will be split into two sections: Big Worlds and Small Worlds. In Big Worlds you will be:

  • creating spaces with tape, paper, fabric, straws, poles etc to create dens
  • exploring the Making Spaces Pod using all the materials to create Big Worlds together
  • team building, working in groups and using coordination skills

In Small Worlds you will be:

  • using senses to create a small world with nature, clay and technology
  • exploring our senses through play, focusing on smell, touch and sight
  • create a tunnel/bridge between the two worlds

When is the Imagination Pods in Residency event?

The sessions run from either 10 – 11:45am or 12:30 – 14:15pm on 5, 6 and 7 December.

Who is the event for and how much does it cost?

This event is suitable for SEN/ASD, deaf/HI and early years children. Booking is free but spaces are limited, so reserving a place for your class is essential. Please complete this form to secure your booking or email imaginationpods@ioi.london for more details. Please note that we only have spaces available on 7 December.

What is an Imagination Pod?

The idea behind an Imagination Pod is to give children a flavour of the Institute of Imagination experience and bridge the gap between formal and informal learning. Developed with the help of children and adults with special education needs, the Pods can be used by all children – regardless of age or ability – to engage in constructive exploratory play. We regularly take imagination on the road to schools and centres in the UK. Find out more about our mobile Imagination Pods by reading about our recent visit to Kingsley High School.
