About this Seminar:

It takes a whole village to raise a child (and two elephants)

A session about parental engagement and using creativity and literacy to engage learners in the curriculum and life outcomes.
Both Wired and The Guardian have described Nick as a ‘man on a mission’ after his career change from the world of marketing and innovation to education, which Nick says was “nice”, but as a just a dad, it was being nominated for a 2017 TED Fellowship by Sir Ken Robinson and a hand written cheque for £1.00,000 from a child in a school in Sunderland that really make it all worthwhile
Originally a Shropshire lad from the Welsh Borders, Nick co-founded the non-profit social enterprise STEAM Co. to to power communities to inspire and engage children in learning and career/life outcomes.
His journey was recently super charged by a book his dad found in the Oxfam bookshop he volunteers in that tells a story of how four boys in a West Virginian coal mining village in the 50’s saw the Sputnik in an October night sky, learned to make rockets and went on to work for NASA. It’s a true story. You really couldn’t make it up.
In this workshop Nick will talk about what he sees as the two elephants in the room. While everyone keeps looking to teachers for the answers to both education and society’s ill, Nick
will look one of the biggest factors proven to raise academic achievement, that of parental and wider community engagement.
During the workshop everyone will confront their maker demons and make and fire a paper rocket, and make them wish they’d done that when they were at school and vow to do it with the young people in their care and help them ‘reach for the stars’.

About the Speaker:

Nick Corston

Dad and Founder STEAM Co

Both Wired and The Guardian have described Nick as a ‘man on a mission’ after his career change from the world of marketing and innovation, which Nick says was “nice”, but as a just a dad, it was being nominated for a 2017 TED Fellowship by Sir Ken Robinson and a hand written cheque for £1.00,000 from a child in a school in Sunderland that really make it all worthwhile. (DOESN’T MAKE SENSE AT ALL.)
Originally a Shropshire lad from the Welsh Borders, Nick is now based near Paddington station and travels to the country advocating for the power of creativity and people to engage children, innovate business and connect communities through the non-profit social enterprise STEAM Co. which he co-founded and now leads to power communities to inspire children with creativity.
His journey was recently super-charged by a book his dad found in the Oxfam bookshop he volunteers in, which tells a story of how four boys in a West Virginian coal mining village in the 50’s saw the Sputnik in an October night sky, learned to make rockets and went on to work for NASA. It’s a true story. You really couldn’t make it up.
