EDA hosts CyberSmart event

The School of Enginering and Digital Arts is hosting a CyberSmart event tdoay (a joint venture with the School of Psychology), since online safety is a key issue for young people. Participants will be taking part in interactive demonstrations designed to showcase cutting-edge psychological techniques and digital technologies that can be used in the study of cyberbullying.

Participants will consider the risks involved in each of these technologies, and how they could potentially be used to stay safe online. Attendees will receive a creative session led by Project Salus in which they will design their own online safety app.

This outreach event is aimed at year 8 students from local schools and will also feature Oculus Rift, 3D scanner and a NAO Robot from EDA.
