Live learning sessions on FB inspire kids into engineering and technology

29-06-2020 | RS Components | New Technologies

RS Components has launched its newest initiative, targeted at all levels of education; from primary through to higher education. The series delivers aspirational online sessions to encourage innovative thinking and encourage the students' creativity.


‘Friends of RS’ is a four-part series of Facebook Watch parties presented as-live by a selection of inspirational young engineers, inventors and educators. The bi-monthly learning workshops are being hosted on the RS Facebook channel throughout June and July, followed by live Q and A sessions. All of the sessions will be available on-demand after initial airing.


The four interactive Facebook sessions cover primary education- covering the basics of turning a creative idea into an invention; secondary education - highlighting the problems facing our oceans and its wildlife; and further/higher education - how students can showcase themselves effectively to prospective employers.


Each speaker will be available to answer questions from students live online following the 15-minute pre-recorded video learning sessions.


Isabella Mascarenhas, VP of Grass Roots at RS, commented: “Opportunities for students to engage in classes online are particularly important at the moment, and are invaluable for supporting parents in their home-schooling efforts. Our Friends of RS video series provides an unconventional and uplifting learning experience that we are sure will inspire creativity across the different youth groups.”
