Inventors & Inventions

England, Scotland, Wales


Our world is full of amazing inventions. The internet, television, computers, space travel - just imagine what life would be like without them! And imagine what it might be like to be an inventor - one of those incredible women and men who went where no one had before. This interactive, creative workshop teaches students about some of our most important inventions, encouraging them to look at the world around them with fresh eyes. We can ALL be inventors, so let's help students to nurture their self-belief, determination, hard work, passion and the all important power of the imagination!

Your class will…

  • Explore innovative and inspiring inventors and inventions.
  • Examine the importance of gender equality in STEM and explore the role of women in STEM in the past, present and future.
  • Encourage possibilities of future inventions.
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama offers a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils to explore the topic, always focusing on content and learning. We offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can demonstrate what they have learnt throughout the day. This is an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience, and can share their learning with peers or parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!

A follow up Resource Pack is also available for this workshop. This pack helps develops pupils’ learning and understanding gained in the Inventors & Inventions drama workshop. The range of creative tasks and exercises are designed to build on the content covered in the workshop, whilst providing the opportunity to explore the theme in more depth.

  • Getting to know Inventors & Inventions
  • Inventions at work in our world
  • STEAM and gender equality

"The drama event went well despite some of the Year 5's from the visiting school being a little reticent at first! All of them enjoyed performing and it was nice to see the children who don't normally participate being given the confidence to join in and perform. The drama leader worked very hard, she was great with the children and had high expectations of behaviour and performance skills. Overall, the children enjoyed the day and the teacher from the middle school who hadn't heard of the company before was very impressed."
