Using drama to help children engage with scientific processes and concepts
Dramatic Science was created in 2013 by the AstraZeneca Teaching Trust (now Primary Science Teaching Trust) in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University and Staffordshire Country Council.
The Dramatic Science approach uses drama in various ways to encourage children's curiosity and confidence in acting and talking about science and appears to support the development of scientific understanding. It is suitable for ages 4 to 11.
Please note: we are aware that the vidoes and audio clips in this CPD Unit are not working. However, the strategies used in the project are described and some teachers may find the reources helpful.
