The kids’ music and computing Hackathon that Siobhan and Sandbox Education ran for us at the Bodleian Libraries was one of the most engaging events we’ve had. Siobhan had clearly put a lot of thought into what she did, and managed to pull together our exhibition and the overarching theme with really concrete and accessible projects for kids. The results were creative, and all the participants (including our team!) had a great time.
“Siobhan and her team ran the kids and teen hacks at #MTFBerlin. They were educational, inspiring and fun events for the young people and there was a lot of creativity and thought in the planning. Siobhan expertise and care makes her the perfect person to run events like these and we will certainly be working with her again at the festival.”
Sandbox Education provided a very engaging and hands on workshop at our first Raspberry Jam at Queen Ethelburga’s in York and they also provided us with a Raspberry Pi shop. Excellent service provider for anyone wanting to introduce physical computing to their curriculum
Siobhan Founder of Sandbox Education knows more about web development and creating websites with schools and their pupils than anyone I have ever met! I could say that her abilities are scary for someone who lacks experience in this field but this would be completely untrue as she is able to break everything down to very small steps so that those involved, whether adults or children, understand.
Siobhan is an extraordinary creative educator with out-of-the-box original ideas and a firm grasp of the importance of teaching creative thinking in conjunction with digital technology programming skills. She is working on transforming existing school curricula, while at the same time utilising the potential of digital technologies to build innovative educational tools.
Sandbox Education developed an innovative website for our teacher training charity. Siobhan the Founder generated ideas which attracted international sponsors and new volunteers to work with us on the Thai/Burma border. She created the design and information architecture which led to a vibrant and informative website. With her educational background she was always on hand to discuss ideas and further strategies, including the setting up of social media; we will certainly be using her and her team in the future to develop the site
Siobhan has delivered high quality CPD sessions for me into Primary schools based on the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. Siobhan’s knowledge and commitment are exceptional. I have also used her skills to help develop lesson plans and schemes of work around Computing in the classroom. She is a committed individual with ties to educational developments in computing within the UK and internationally.
