Dundee Science Centre: Twilight CPD Working with the Science, Art and Writing (SAW) initiative Tuesday 12th May, 4-6pm The Science, Art and Writing (SAW) initiative breaks down traditional barriers between the arts and sciences. SAW uses images from science as a starting point for scientific experimentation, art and creative writing and in doing so stimulates creativity and scientific curiosity. Children realise that science and the arts are interconnected – and they discover new and exciting ways of looking at the world. SAW projects are accessible to all ages and abilities. They stimulate exploration, enquiry and creativity. And they are fun! This workshop will give a brief introduction to the approach, with opportunities for some hands-on SAW experiences. About the presenter SAW’s founder, Professor Anne Osbourn, is a practicing scientist with an international reputation for her work on plants and plant diseases. Her enthusiasm for inspiring schoolchildren about science led her to develop the first ‘science, art and writing’ (SAW) projects in local schools. www.sawtrust.org What’s included? The session costs £12.50 per person. Participants will be greeted with tea, coffee and muffins on arrival and will receive a goody bag at the end of the session.
