Accessibility and Public Transport Research at UCL
Transport Revealed Using Multimedia for Public Education and Training (TRUMPET)
TRUMPET is an EPSRC Public Awareness of Science award. We are working with
schools in Southend to devise suitable methods for encouraging understanding
about accessible transport in children with learning difficulties. This
project is using relevant outcomes from other projects as the basis for
developing materials and approaches for dissemination to a wider group
of beneficiaries of the research.
The research team is working with the Department for Education and Employment's
Eastern Region Special Education Needs Co-ordination Project (Special Education
Needs) on this project. TRUMPET is working closely with the DIMPLE project
so that resources are used to best effect.
Working with young people with learning difficulties to help us, we
have produced a game called "Going Places!"
which serves to pass on our research information in the form of a travel
