The University of Brighton will tailor lessons to match the children’s current learning topics.
The project will be at Windmill Hill village’s windmill and follows an award of £80,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore machinery and sweeps at the local landmark near Herstmonceux, East Sussex.
The university’s outreach project will use educational packs to introduce school students to taking photographs, filming one-minute documentaries and writing blogs.
The finished items will be used by the pupils’ schools, the university and the windmill trust. In addition, a university media student will be making a promotional video for the event which will include interviews with pupils and windmill volunteers.
Wendy Heasmer, the university’s Campus Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator, said: “The project will involve our Widening Participation staff and media academics and students from our media programmes.
