#ComunicaCiencia para inspirar: STEM Sisters


HMDT Music is seeking a science education specialist to develop a new science demonstration show based around the life and work of an individual or group of historical female scientists which links into the KS2 curriculum. The new show will be developed between February and July 2020 ready to tour primary schools from September 2020.

STEM Sisters celebrates the achievements of historical female mathematicians and scientists to inspire primary school children, especially girls with the stories of women whose pioneering work was so often unrecognised. It includes a range of research, schools and outreach interactive activities which use a cross-curriculum creative and approach to motivate learning and participation.

Following HMDT Music’s award-winning methodology and working in partnership with the Royal Institution, STEM Sisters combines a new multi-media performance piece in theatres, introducing the lives and work of several of these innovative women showcasing where possible related scientific techniques such as shadow puppets, micro-cinema technology, electronic music, with the following in-school activities:
