Members of the Move2Learn project team, Andrew Manches and Claire Sowton, along with performer,  Steven Dakers, will present an event as part of the Royal Society of Edinburgh 2019 Summer events programme.  The event will run twice on 23rd August, starting at 10am and 12.30pm.

The event asks visitors to join them on a journey through time and mime to see how research into children’s science learning challenges the way we think about mind and body.  Comprising a performance with a participatory game of science charades and an overview of some of the research taking place in the field of embodied learning, this event is accessible to a broad audience.
