The Wilberforce Trust is keen to get over the importance of eye health to as young an audience as possible and in the previous post we saw how demonstrations with ‘Simspecs’ were used to engage an audience of 6 and 7 year olds (Beavers). Class 7 pupils, ie 11 and 12 year olds, at Huntington School – where we have partnered with the school’s Wilberforce House – responded to our challenge to design some ‘Spectacular Spectacles’.

We’ve chosen some of the designs to feature here and we hope that we might be able to turn these into ‘wearable’ fun specs in a craft session with Wilberforce tenants in the Living&Learning Zone. We’re hoping that the pupils will be able to come to help them.

Watch this space for news of the next stage of this fun project. Maybe we’ll even be able to get Elton John to wear some!
