Dundee - Science, Art and Writing

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
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.
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. There will
also be an opportunity to purchase two books published
by the SAW trust at a reduced rate.
