Emporium of Dangerous Ideas

18 Jun

This event for all of you interested in Science, technology, engineering, mathematics, creative industries, essential skills, enterprise, education, employability and those interested in the rise of the maker culture in food and drink production in Scotland.



Hosted by The Emporium of Dangerous Ideas and College Development Network, This exciting event will celebrate the art, science and technology of brewing.  Hear from industry experts, entrepreneurs, educators as well as two teams from the college sector who are taking on a brewing challenge this spring, about the wide variety of knowledge and skills that constitutes brewing, and how these relate to education today.  Are we providing a craft experience in education for young people or do we take the mass production approach? This event will stimulate debate and discussion around the nature of education today.

Who will be brewing a creative mix on the day?
