The Sensory Studio is an incredibly versatile space that can be adapted to any area of the curriculum and provides a platform for immersive environments, informational scenarios, interactivity, multi-sensory stimuli, extra curricular clubs and special events.
The space makes use of three projectors to impose one super wide image, we have a bank of coloured LED lights, a special 12 speaker surround sound system, a moving spotlight and a variety of alternative control interfaces for use by students and staff.
We have been incredibly lucky to have worked with an Interactive Programme Designer to develop our own content and use sensors, cameras, microphones, tag readers and the iPads to trigger various lighting, video and sound events. In this way, students have accessible resources to have control over their environment and teachers can wirelessly control a particular scenario.
Sessions make use of auditory, tactile, visual, taste and smell stimuli and aim to provide pupils with the opportunity to learn whilst working, exploring and experiencing independently.
