Synthetic Biology

For this years February half term challenge 20 young people creatively explored the idea of synthetic biology and produced a multimedia performance!

Held at Sheffield Hallam University City Campus, the project encouraged the group to look inside cells and see how the next century could be determined on the nano scale!

Supported by Destinations Arts and local dance artist Angga Kara, performance Artist Raquel Cherry-Bent and visual Artist Jennifer Booth.

The workshops were well supported by Sheffield musician JKAS and Ashley and crew from Neon Tech productions provided document the creative sessions.

These sessions build on earlier half-term challenges which explored the genetic sciences and worked to deepen participants understanding of advanced scientific concepts.

Working alongside Maxine Greaves, the Equality and Diversity Manager and academics at Sheffield Hallam, our program of work uses the STEM subjects to provide an enhanced creative learning environment that develops confidence, raise aspirations and employability skills.


Here’s one of the films we used to explain some of the concepts to our young folk!
