PERFORM Project wraps up with a Conference

Over the past 12 months we have had the pleasure to interact with PERFORM (Participatory Engagement with Scientific and Technological Research through Performance) a project financed by the EU that "...aims to investigate the effects of the use of innovative science education methods based on performing arts in fostering young peoples’ motivations and engagement with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)...". Here's a link to their web site.

Right away realized that the ideas behind PERFORM are really what we are about with Project Jet Propulsion Theatre so it became natural trying to interact with them.

It all happened on June 14 and 15 2018 when we had the pleasure to participate to the closing conference in Paris, summing up the work that had been done till then. We even had the opportunity to do a poster session where we introduced JPT to the participants.

All in all we came away from the conference with the very positive feeling that the field of Science Communication through Theatre and Performance is alive and well. Lots can still be done but it has amazing potential for growth. We are looking forward continuing collaborations with the partners of PERFORM, creating networks and pushing forward the idea that Art&Science is really the way of the future.
