Social science research makes a difference; it is the study of society and the manner in which people behave and influence the world. Social Science affects us all everyday - at school, at work and in within our communities.
Through this free one-day event aimed at Greater Manchester secondary school students (future social scientists), the Research Centre for Applied Social Science (RCASS) at MMU will provide a platform to debate and discuss social sciences issues. It will offer a fascinating insight into social science research undertaken at MMU and how it impacts on for example, governments, local authorities and schools.
Participation is at the heart of the event and students will participate in interactive workshops, spanning subjects including:
• human geography
Workshops will include (amongst others):
• young people’s use of video games
• online identity, privacy and safety
• impact of lighting on space and place
• youth gangs.
