Inventing Isobel


Shows & Workshops
Duration: 45 mins
Suitable For: FS, KS1

Inventing Isobel is a show designed for up to 60 pupils (two classes).

Isobel loves solving problems she encounters by creating new contraptions. She needs your students’ help to choose the right materials for her inventions by thinking carefully about their properties and testing out what your students think might work.

Over the course of 45 minutes, Isobel and your students examine a variety of different materials, thinking about which materials are best for different purposes. Does chocolate burn? Can you make a stone anchor? Why don’t we make windows out of something less likely to break?

Our engaging presenter will give your students plenty of opportunities to contribute their ideas through open questioning and time for paired discussion.

Our experienced team will put together a full or part-day programme of shows and workshops that fits into your school timetable and that allows sufficient time to set up, reset or clear away. The programme is tailored to each school and can usually include a mixture of activities for different Key Stages. A small number of activities may require two staff members, but we can run two streams of activities simultaneously with an additional member of staff.
