The universal appeal of magic tricks, myths and mysteries are being harnessed to help school children across Europe develop a passion for science in a new project coordinated by Queen Mary, University of London. TEMI will develop new teaching methods and support science teachers to improve their ability to capture an audience’s attention using theatre and other related techniques. The first teacher training seminars will start in January 2014. The project will end in 2017.
