Animating Science Workshops

Animating Science is an exciting pilot project under the banner of STEAM (taking STEM and adding A for arts). University of Dundee's School of Life Sciences has partnered with DCA Learning to deliver a unique art and science collaborative programme supported by Wellcome through the Institutional Strategic Support Fund.

Animating Science aims to develop stop motion animation skills with pupils and teachers (P7 - S3) and support them in creating animated films about Life Science concepts and processes. This will deepen pupils’ engagement and science understanding and make science learning more fun.
