SEN Workshops – Science Explorers

Investigate the science of sound with our multi-sensory science workshops, developed especially for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

In these workshops, our experienced presenters will lead your students through an exploration of sound through their senses.

Our fun and surprising demonstrations are designed to be accessible for all using a mixture of taste, touch, sight and hearing.

The workshop is based upon our longest-running and most popular show “Music to Your Ears”. Our presenter will work with your staff’s expertise in engaging your students and adapt the workshop to a level suitable for every student.
