Art and science in the classroom


 

Working with schoolchildren is inspirational. They are open to both the simplicity and the complexity of ideas in a more fluid way than adults. Artists involved in SAW projects have found the experience extremely rewarding.

SAW days are an ongoing learning experience for me and I feel that I take away a lot at the end of each day.”
Sarah Jarrett

In each of our SAW projects, stunning photographs of science in action have been used as a starting point for the children to produce their own striking visual art.

We’re interested in hearing from artists who would like to be involved. Please email us your CV if you would like to take part.

 

Exploring words through science

Science and writing have so much in common – a quest for fresh ideas, the need for attention to detail, and consistent reworking and development of a chosen route.

Bringing science and writing together in the classroom seems the most natural thing to do.” 
Helen Ivory, Eric Gregory award-winning Bloodaxe poet

Writers involved in SAW have witnessed the power of scientific ideas and images to provide inspirational starting points for developing innovative ideas and texts. When coupled with the amazing enthusiasm and creativity of schoolchildren, it’s a heady (some would say addictive!) mix. Everyone taking part comes away inspired, refreshed and lured by the scientific muse.
