"Einstein's Pants" - KS3 Eco-Schools, Energy & Environment Education
“Fantastic - brilliant performances again with some really effective follow up workshops. It retains its force, seems to get funnier and is educationally valuable” Head of PSHE, QE School
Global warming, rising sea levels, renewable energy, bio-fuels, carbon footprints, leadership and self-belief – these are all areas included in our KS3 education tour of ‘Einstein’s Pants’.
This witty and imaginative play explains the true cost of our phenomenal energy consumption to the environment around us.
During a visit to a local museum, our leading characters discover an unusual exhibit - an old pair of pants! Scrawled inside them is the last and greatest theory of Albert Einstein, “waste too big”. Is this a coded warning to future generations or just a spelling mistake? Following this memorable story, our workshops cover the latest issues in global warming including changing weather patterns, ‘carbon neutral’ status, sustainability and renewable energy.
The 60 minute performance and 60 minute workshops motivate students to become advocates for the environment and give them the courage to speak up for and act on their beliefs.
This performance can contribute towards your school being awarded Eco-School status.
“Always good to work with you, we are assured of high quality” Bishop of Winchester School
