In a dark corner, there’s a machine. It’s old and dusty, full of mysterious tubes. We don’t know who made it. We don’t know what it’s for. It could be dangerous… But we know we need to do something. Hetty needs our help! Get ready for mystery and adventure in this interactive show which aims to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers and creative thinkers.
For a limited time, for just £180 you get all this:
Before the show an in-school STEAM workshop. We’ll send each school who books for the show some Henry Hoovers, screwdrivers, and a professional creative facilitator trained by The Dukes and Dr Irene Wise, together with an Astonishing Instruction Manual for collaborative experimentation: taking part, re-assembly, re-purposing and invention. 30 tickets to see the show - teachers go free! The children’s own ideas for machines involving engines and suction from the workshop will be on display.
After the show ideas for your classroom
We will provide you with lesson plans including further creative ways to explore states of matter, a key element of the KS2 Science curriculum: the show features a gaseous character, who is frozen, dissolved into a solution and then photochemically catalysed back into a gas; links to ideas for other engineering challenges and ideas for intergenerational exploration of engineering heroines
Reasons for schools to get involved
• Engage diverse children from low socio-economic groups with science, using arts and culture as an accessible stepping stone.
• Address barriers to access and progression within science for children from ethnic minority groups by raising the profile of STEAM subjects
• Gain new relationships for the school with STEAM partners
• An amazing chance to watch high quality live theatre in a real theatre setting
