Who are “Scientists”?
This is a B R A N D N E W project, which will run its first pilot (comprising a film and workshop) at a school in Leicestershire in December. This trial will inform the process of the film and accompanying workshop being tailored into multiple age-specific formats.
What do you think of when someone says “scientist”? That image - the first one that came into your mind, whatever it was - tells you a million stories about how accessible science is; to you, to the people around you, and even to the society that you live in.
Who are “Scientists”? is a project that aims to explore these perceptions of “scientists” and pull them apart. Through a workshop coupled with a film, we’ll introduce types of “science” that none of us had ever even thought of before the project began.
