EdLab Challenge: Deliver an Interdisciplinary Project with Primary Pupils

This is an EdLab challenge created by our Science Communication Lecturer Dr Sam Illingworth. It is delivered with the help of EdLab students to primary school pupils from local schools. The basis of the project is to mix the disciplines of science and poetry to demonstrate the similarities.

“At the start of the session the pupils were resistant to taking part as they didn’t like the idea of science and poetry; some said it was ‘boring.’ But as the session started they all got involved, and I think it was helped by the type of poems that were used; they were modern and fun and got the children engaged.”
