Event dates

Using striking scientific images, Science, Art and Writing (SAW) Trust workshops break down the traditional barriers between science and the arts, inspiring creativity and scientific exploration. Get creative on topics such as water, plants, sound, weather, microbes, biodiversity, space or colour.

Science activities, poetry writing and creative art are delivered by professional artists, writers, and practising scientists.

SAW in school workshops are accessible to all ages and abilities and can be tailored to reach specific learning objectives. The traditional in-school SAW projects which are designed around a specific scientific topic, consist of a bespoke combination of science activities, followed by poetry writing and creative art activities. These in school projects have proved immensely popular with children and teachers alike and give valuable insights into sparking engagement within the classroom.

‘The SAW workshops were inspiring and motivating for all pupils in my class, regardless of their ability. Each learner found strengths in different areas and were able to experience success on a number of occasions throughout the day. Parents and pupils alike fed back very positive things about the session and the opportunity to do something different was very much welcomed by all! Thank you all for a fab session!’ – Class Teacher

‘I can’t thank you enough for such a fantastic day last Thursday. The children were absolutely  buzzing on Friday – as was I! Thank you for all of your hard work and input into the day. It’s amazing what you do! SAW embodies enquiry based learning – learning by doing! THANK YOU.’ – Teacher

The Science, Art and Writing (SAW) Trust is an international science education programme and registered charity, that aims to break down the traditional barriers between science and the arts.
