Blue Kazoo in USA.
This year, Tom received a grant to visit schools, museums and heritage sites in Massachusetts, USA. He spent a month researching the methods of history re-enactments in popular tourist attractions to develop a bespoke classroom workshop for schools in Nottinghamshire. This is thanks to the support of Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship and with funding from Nottinghamshire County Council.
2019 was a huge year for Blue Kazoo. We have had the pleasure of working with lots of talented and enthusiastic teachers and pupils. We launched our RH Notts project in Sherwood Forest and our local heritage project with Ashfield District Council and the Byron Society. Next year is already shaping up to be pretty special with Byron making another appearance and a couple of other big projects we’re eagerly awaiting to announce to you all. We have also received some funding to expand our range of characters and invest in some new equipment to make our workshops even more special.
Schools visited in 2019
Tiny Green Planet proved to be a success in schools across Nottinghamshire. The aim of the project was to engage children in a conversation about conservation. Classes were encouraged to think about the impact they have on the world and were asked what they would change if they could design their own planet. The project was such a success in one school that we actually left the planet with them for an extra week because the children had so many brilliant ideas!
