Science Storytime

Science Storytime

Who said that science and literacy don’t mix?

In this series of events, led by researchers and staff members at the Babraham Institute, children are introduced to scientific ideas and people through storytelling.  Each session has a different story with a different message about science.

Video readings will be made available on our YouTube channel at the following times:

Friday 26 March, 11am.

Monday 29 March, 11am.

Friday 2 April, 11am.

Booking is not required, but please register if you would like an email reminder of the event details and how to take part.  You can register here.

Stories may include:

Battle Robots of the Blood, by Adrian Liston.  Written by one of our very own researchers, “Battle Robots of the Blood” is an engaging story about our immune system.  It tells the story of Tim, a seven-year-old boy with a faulty immune system, and the dangers of the world around him.

Moth, by Isabel Thomas.  A prize-winning picture book, Moth is a story of light and dark, of change and adaptation, of survival and hope.  The story is a beautiful exploration of the evolution of the peppered moth, studied by Cambridge professor Michael Majerus.

My Mummy is a Scientist, by Kerrine and Jason Bryan.  This colourful, rhyming, gender stereotype-busting book will introduce children to a range of science jobs.
