Sculpting from single use plastic and a Storytelling framework to Pitch an idea

Who : Key Stage 2 & 3

When : Tuesday to Thursday

What : A study reported by the Guardian in March 2018 found that 90% of bottled water contains micro plastics, in some cases 325 pieces. Artist, Diane Watson, will confront these statistics by creating an installation and discussing the issues with students. We’ll ask students to bring plastic they’ve collected with them.

And join Seven Stories expert storytellers to learn new ways to create and present an idea. Through exploration of storytelling techniques young people will develop key communication skills while picking up hints and tips on how to create a compelling argument.

Geordie Bridges (Centre for Life)

Who : Key Stage 2 & 3

When : Monday to Friday (See below for current availability)

What : How much fun will it be to try out all sorts of materials, see how well they work by trying to break them and then use what you’ve learned to try again?!

We certainly have some impressive bridges here in the North East so it is exciting to be using them as the backdrop to learning about the important role of civil engineers. A worthwhile, interesting and impactful career choice for girls as well as boys.

The workshops will require use of a range of technical and personal skills, all of which people use every day in their jobs.  We hope young people will leave recognising they’ve already got the foundations of skills they will use in their career – it’s just a case of practicing and developing them, which they will throughout their working lives. 30 Places.
