[Konferensbidrag, övrigt]

In this workshop we will discuss the use of science theatre as a method of inspiring youngsters and creating a bridge between local schools and the university. As an example, we will look at the theatre production on the life and work of Isaac Newton held at Chalmersska Huset during the past school year. This play includes numerous hands-on experiments and demonstrations, many of which the children are invited to participate in actively. We will step into and out of the play, pausing to reflect together on the various requirements for success in such a project. This play is written and performed by Sheila Galt, designed for visiting school classes in grades 4 to 6.

Nyckelord: Newton, physics, didactics, outreach
