And another ‘thing’

The Generator

Remember that ‘thing’ that Kirkbymoorside Primary School are looking to create? Well I received an e-mail from Rhiannon Ellis at the Theatre Royal in Wakefield last week that began:

“I recently saw that you were interested in a ‘thing’ to explore science and wanted to let you know that we potentially have a ‘thing’ to give away!”

You see – the ‘thing’ word is catching on just as I wanted!!

Rhiannon explains:  “Over the last six months we have been touring round festivals and so on and  so forth with a specially architecturally designed ‘Cultural Generator!’ (which is kind of like a magical shed!). We have done this in conjunction with various cultural organizations in Wakefield but as we have reached the end of the project  the Generator is about to be installed in an exhibition at the Beam Gallery and we are discussing its life beyond the exhibition. It struck me that perhaps it could play a part in your future project?”

What a fantastic offer.

Why not pop along to see it, and let us know what you think. Or if you can’t make it to the exhibition there is a fun film of it being constructed here. (yep still not quite worked out the inserting video into a post bit – next lesson I think!!!)

  1. Wow, how cool is that ! I’d be really interested in finding out more about the ‘shed’. Do you know if it focuses on one element of science or is it the kind of thing that could used throughout the year and across age groups?
