Showcase the power of science to improve life on Earth and to build scientific skills that will help young children to take action against climate change and biodiversity loss. Together, we can connect thousands of children, families and communities across the South with science and nature so everyone is empowered to take action.
Here's why you'll want to work with us:
With over 40 years of science communication expertise, Wonderseekers can help make your research accessible and relevant to a wider audience than ever before. Through our extensive community ecosystems, we can open up exciting opportunities for citizen science and other activities to contribute valuable data to your research.
Wonderseekers believes that, with science, children can choose to live healthier, more sustainable lives and contribute to a better world for all. Science engagement has typically focused on specific scientific knowledge for science career pathways aimed at children over the age of 11. Sadly, by this point, many children already feel disconnected from science. Our approach focusses on broader, critical science enquiry skills for social impact, advocating that everyone can, and should be able to, use science to make sense of the world around them, support critical thinking and develop self-confidence and resilience.
We'd love to hear why we should be partnering with you.
Wonderseekers is currently seeking scientific partners for the following projects:
Love Your Ears
Content partnerships and exhibit development to enhance an interactive exhibition zone at Winchester Science Centre. The purpose of Love Your Ears is to help children and their grown-ups to:
- Explore human hearing and anatomy.
- Understand how we can protect and preserve our hearing.
- Explore common auditory conditions.
- Be inspired by how science is being used to make life better for people with hearing impairments.
Here On Earth
This is a space at Winchester Science Centre where children can be an active part of research projects, have their voice heard and collectively contribute to making a difference to people and planet. Here on Earth will address the existing power imbalance between children, community leaders and policy makers.
It features fun and interactive exhibits with a direct call to action that will provide authentic feedback from children. That will help us make informed decisions about future projects and have a greater understanding of what they believe is relevant and important.
