Curiosity Academy

We kicked off the school holidays with an awe-inspiring week of STEAM and heritage at our Curiosity Academy hosted by Creswell Crags. Participants explored creative writing, perfume making, game design and audio workshops, including making artwork speak via sensors and plants talk when touched!

Participants also visited Bletchley Park once the top-secret home of the WWII Codebreakers. During the week we were joined by guest speakers each inspiring participants with their knowledge and expertise.

An interactive exhibition at Creswell Crags will showcase the participants artwork in September. Dates to be confirmed.
