The Privacy Debate Kit was funded by the Royal Institution and Lloyd’s Register Foundation. It was produced alongside the CHRISTMAS LECTURES Zone, in partnership with the 2017 RI CHRISTMAS LECTURES series: The language of life.
2,000 Kits were produced, and distributed from January 2018. As of September 2018, all but a handful of Kits have been distributed.
Through our evaluation we have learnt:
- We estimate that at least 861 Debate Kits have been used by teachers.
- 85% of teachers who filled in the feedback survey intend to use the Kit again.
- Teachers report that the Debate Kit helps their students develop communication skills including speaking, listening, and developing structured arguments; as well as giving students a chance to see science applied to topics outside of the curriculum.
