Imaginaturalists

The Heart of Science

Imaginaturalists is an education program using creativity and artistic expression to communicate scientific concepts in schools.


I wish to encourage children to engage with the world around them, giving them a love of nature and a desire to explore and protect our world.


Creativity engages children with science by learning in a fun hands on approach. Gaining an understanding of many concepts in science and an improved self confidence in all aspects of their education. 


A taste of some of the courses offered are outlined below. These are adaptable and can be styled to suit your schools needs. 


In addition to full term/10 week courses, intensive one day workshops and professional development days are also offered. These incorporate a full day of creative thinking, observation and result in discovery and documentation of the scientific principles of the world around us.
