Situation

The learning facilities at the Roman Baths are over-subscribed & fall far short of what is expected of one of the UK's foremost heritage sites. Without urgent intervention schools will look elsewhere for learning outside the classroom opportunities. This means that the learning potential about Roman building & Roman culture, an important part of the National Curriculum, will be lost.

Solution

A new learning space will increase capacity & reveal more of the monument. Children & young people will use the cutting-edge digital learning resource, to explore in-situ Roman remains. They will develop skills & understanding about: Roman building techniques that are still in use today; Roman culture; & chronology. The resource will use the latest technology, e.g. augmented reality & image recognition. Children, young people & teachers will help design an exciting resource.
