Exploring Children’s Literature: science in fiction

Delivered by Just Imagine with Ebor Academy Trust

14th March 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

£35

From adventures with quantum physics to environmental thrillers, we will explore the way science features in fiction for children and teenagers. We will also take a detour into narrative nonfiction, sometimes called ‘faction’. We will look briefly at the history of the Science Fiction or SF genre as well as reviewing a range of recent books

Bring along your favourite science-based fiction to share with others. There will be plenty of resources to view on the day and some suggestions for incorporating the books in your teaching.

  • can science in fiction be used to teach science?
  • speculative fiction – science of the future
  • reading fiction and nonfiction in tandem

This session is open to anyone who would like to broaden their knowledge of children’s literature.
