Science and Creativity Workshop
Charlotte Barkla will teach kids about the crossover between science and the arts. Kids will explore the role of creativity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), and be guided through a series of story starters and writing prompts, designed to get their creative juices flowing.
Charlotte will also discuss the process she used in writing and publishing her science-themed book, Edie’s Experiments. Kids will have the chance to brainstorm ideas for their own STEM-themed narrative.
Charlotte worked as a civil engineer and physics teacher before rediscovering her love for children’s literature. She now writes picture books, middle grade fiction and feature articles.
Children will need paper and a pencil. The workshop will be delivered online via Zoom. The link for this virtual workshop will be sent out to attendees prior to this event so make sure you DOUBLE CHECK your email address!
This workshop is suitable for ages 8-12 years.
