SciStage (Science on Stage) is a collaboration project between Estonian, Swedish, Icelandic and Norwegian partners that brings together science communication and engagement, education and performing arts. The aim of the project was to explore the connection between science and theatre in order to better describe, diversify and develop the format of a science theatre show.
Together we came up with a new and exciting way to communicate scientific topics with the help of drama and theatre that is called SciWalk. SciWalk is a new format that integrates performing arts, science, experiments, storytelling and physical movement. It is an audio journey that involves learning about a scientific topic from various perspectives through storytelling and performing small experiments while enjoying the experience.
The project was funded by Nordplus Horizontal programme.
