Community and Education

THERE ARE MANY WAYS OF GETTING INVOLVED!

Community and Schools Engagement

We are very excited about the opportunities for this year’s festival to make a real difference to the young people of Grantham and the surrounding area and inspire the next generation of scientists, artists and arts attenders.

School engagement has always been very positive with the 2016 festival attracting 3000 pupils from 35 schools.

We are currently working on an exciting programme of workshops, activities and exhibitions both for primary school and secondary schools which will include arts, science, engineering and technology and we are working with partners such as Woolsthorpe Manor and the University of Lincoln and the STEM Ambassadors.

Community and family opportunities will this year include a magnificent summer of science, arts and circus all kicking off on Saturday 7th July with our Gravity Family Day will take place both inside and outside the Guildhall Arts Centre.  This will feature hands on science and circus workshops, a star dome alongside lots of arts, crafts and performances.

Primary schools, We have lots of opportunities for pupils aged 4-11 to get involved, from coming along to one of the primary school mornings sessions either in Grantham or at Woolsthorpe Manor or to the fabulous Big Science Show by the Science Museum at the Meres Leisure Centre.

Pupils will also have the chance to take part in our Saturday night spectacular Voyages of Discovery, so don’t miss out on our free artist’s workshops to help create a beautiful garden of light!
