SEE MONSTER Our Changing British Weather image

Joined by Natasha, we take a walk through the themes of the week including climate change, regeneration, and our great British weather. Named as one of the Top 50 women working in Technology worldwide, Natasha is the Head of Partner Engineering at Amazon Prime Video, and the founder of the award winning STEM network ‘Empowering Women with Tech’, which elevates, educates and empowers women and underrepresented communities to get into Digital, Science and Technology careers.

This assembly will give pupils a chance to hear first-hand how creativity can be found woven in to every element of STEAM and a glimpse into the work of the wide range of facilitators working across the project. There will also be the chance to get involved in some digital interactive activities led by Natasha. This talk will be hosted by SEE MONSTER’s Education Producer, Rachel Millett (suggested for KS2, can be used as a whole KS2 assembly or in individual classrooms)

UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of creativity, taking place across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and online from March to October 2022.

We’re lifting the lid on 10 awe-inspiring new ideas, shaped across science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics by brilliant minds working in unexpected collaborations. Unmissable events and unforgettable experiences are coming to places and spaces right across the UK: from coastal towns and city centres to breathtaking areas of natural beauty.

You’ll be able to experience UNBOXED in person, on TV, on radio and online – entirely for free. And we want you to get involved in every part of this extraordinary year: diving into our UK-wide learning programmes, taking part in workshops and special events, even playing a central role in bringing one or more of these 10 astonishing projects to life.

Take a thrilling multimedia ride through 13.8 billion years of history in About Us, and get planting as Dandelion reinvents the harvest festival for the 21st century. Unleash the limitless potential of the mind in Dreamachine, fast-forward three decades with GALWAD: a story from our future and become one of 20,000 ‘Lumenators’ lighting up our wild and beautiful places in Green Space Dark Skies. You can explore the solar system right here on Earth in Our Place in Space, tour a magical forest in the heart of the city with PoliNations, and climb aboard a repurposed North Sea offshore platform in SEE MONSTER. StoryTrails is animating and amplifying the hidden histories of our towns and cities – while Tour de Moon is a major festival created in collaboration with our lunar satellite.

UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK is the biggest and most ambitious creative programme ever presented on these shores. It’s funded and supported by the four governments of the UK, and is co-commissioned with Belfast City Council, Creative Wales and EventScotland. Join millions for this landmark exploration of how creativity – our creativity – has the power to change the world.
