Last week was an exciting time in the MakeBelieve Arts rehearsal room as Trish, Ross and Alice were joined by award winning designer Ian Teague and resident doctor for the BBC, CBBC and Newsround, Dr Ranj. The week was spent mapping out the inside of a giants body, improvising various scenarios to discover the character of the Mademoiselle Liver – the body’s own chef, and discovering the story of the industrious red blood cells, speeding around our bodies to ensure our oxygen gets delivered. We had great fun recreating the covert white blood cells, security guards of our bodies, patroling the internal highways on the look out for bugs. The project, funded by the Wellcome Trust is currently booking, and will tour around schools in London throughout November.
MakeBelieve Arts is really proud of the numerous programmes we offer to support a more creative approach to Science, Technology and Mathematics. From stories about the King and Queen of Number that teach number recognition in the early years, to programmes exploring the inside of a giant as part of our Giant Science tour, MakeBelieve Arts is incorporating STEM subjects in a dynamic and exciting fashion.
