As the title of this challenge suggests, we have something a little different for you today. We have a science challenge set by Lewis Hou, the Director of Science Ceilidh (A Ceilidh is a community gathering, Scottish Folk Dancing done for all occasions).
The project is an award-winning educational project bringing people together through science and music. They invite all people to come along and do a turn at their ceilidhs, and celebrate science through dance, poetry, storytelling, music and more. With this in mind they’d like you to…
Learn a science fact and do a dance, write a poem/song or tell a story about it. It could be any science fact – about humans, animals, plants, earth, space… the universe is your oyster. Follow this link to find some great facts or find your own: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4344759. How might you respond to your fact? A dance about lightening? A poem about gorillas? A story about cells?
If you have a bit more time…
Get together with others and share your creative pieces together – can you guess what their fact was?
Did you learn something new? Was it interesting to think of ways to present new information? Did it make learning fun?
Share your fact and creative response with us and @fiddlebrain on twitter. You can share on here and/or on your social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
