Discover performance techniques to enhance student engagement in science. This workshop, led by immersive theatre company Kilter, will introduce teachers to a range of innovative approaches to explore scientific concepts with young people.


This workshop will give teachers the opportunity to experience these techniques first hand and collectively reflect on ways to integrate these into science lessons to support the curriculum. The techniques are particularly designed to encourage students who typically do not engage with science lessons. Kilter will demonstrate the power of narrative and character to engage young scientific minds in a world charged with ethical dilemmas & responsibilities for every citizen beyond the classroom & outside the lab.


Caroline Garland & Oliver Langdon, Artistic Directors of Kilter have worked within schools since 2007, collaborating on numerous cross-curriculum activities to create workshops that breathe new life into both student understanding and engagement. Partnering with the University of Bristol since 2015, Kilter has worked closely with practicing scientists & ethicists to produce performances for enquiring teenage minds. Most recently, this collaboration resulted in Invincible, an immersive theatre production for secondary school students which shone a spotlight on the future ethical issues within Synthetic Biology.”


This workshop is primarily aimed at secondary science teachers but all are welcome. Refreshments will also be provided. The workshop is free but please register here.


There is a complimentary workshop ‘Creating Space for Dialogue in Science Lessons’ workshop which will take place on the 10th October at We The Curious. It is not essential that you attend both. This workshop has been created as part of the Horizon 2020 funded PERFORM project.
