Daughters of Invention

Engineering project for KS2


Daughters of Invention

A project for primary schools delivered by The Play House working in partnership with biomedical engineers from the University of Birmingham (UoB).

Staff and postgraduate researchers from UoB will work alongside drama practitioners to train in active learning techniques, devise and deliver an interactive and immersive drama, with a narrative focused on the treatment of a patient with a broken bone, and the impact of that injury on their lives. The children will have to design and build a medical device to help repair the broken bone.

The project will culminate with an all school celebration event held on UoB campus during British Science Week. A series of online films and resources will also be created to encourage further class work and provide a legacy for the project.

This project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering – Ingenious scheme.
