Description

The day will explore how schools can use creative arts to inspire students, improve results in core subjects and develop young people who are ready for further study and that will leave education will a full range of 21st century skills.
The symposium will be a call to action for teachers and professionals interested in arts, literacy and STEM education. There will be a focus on ensuring young people have access to a balanced curriculum with the arts embedded into STEM learning to ensure options to progress to further study are open to them.

All delegates will receive a complementary ticket to see Motionhouse perform Charge at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe the same evening. Inspired by the role of electricity in the human body, this multi-media show uses digital projections to create a world on stage where dancers and images interact.
In addition, schools and colleges are invited to bring their students to the performance and book a workshop with Motionhouse. Schools who attend can also access to Teaching Resources related to Charge, provided by Motionhouse which includes: scene-by-scene analysis and interpretation; 30+ questions and research tasks; behind the scenes rehearsal footage and interviews; and 12 fully-developed practical workshops examining Charge ideas and techniques.
