Se buscan comunicadores de ciencia para talleres en UK


STEM Sisters, a new arts-based STEM project for primary schools launching in the Spring term 2021 is seeking two science communicators to deliver workshops in schools in the Midlands, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

STEM Sisters focuses on historical female scientists and mathematicians whose work was so often unrecognised but who contributed in so many ways to major developments in our lives today. Never has science been more relevant, but women continue to be under-represented. The aim is to illustrate their achievements and life-stories through music, theatre and puppetry, to teach the KS2 curriculum. The project includes:

· A new multi-media performance piece about key women which will start as a digital performance in school, before touring theatres as a live production from the summer;

· Two in-school science sessions:

o a crystallography demonstration featuring Rosalind Franklin, Dorothy Hodgkin and Kathleen Lonsdale;

o a costumed interpreter workshop drawing children into Mary Anning’s world of fossils;

· A new Heritage Zone website and a range of online teaching plans and resources.

The demonstration and workshop have now been developed and their creators, who will deliver the sessions in London and the South East, will train the new communicators online. All equipment, costumes, props and script will be provided.
