COMPELLING PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT
CREATIVE PEDAGOGICAL APPROACHES
FLUX is a small but mighty creative education company. We use the arts as a platform to engage the community in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) & creative learning initiatives.
Home of Moving Science, we continue to bring innovative STEAM engagement and education projects to communities, schools and research departments all over the UK.
Alongside of workshops and education events, FLUX consults on a wide variety of STEM engagement and education projects.
FLUX started as a dance theatre company, specialising in science public engagement. Today our methods are still firmly rooted in the arts, and we now offer a broad range of performance, education and training services each with creativity at its heart.
What People Say
“Flux Dance's workshops combine Science and dance in a way, and with outcomes, that we never thought possible - kids and adults have huge amounts of fun dancing and throwing themselves around the room, and all learn about something to do with Science by the end of the session. And we all enjoy it, with no exception! A brilliant idea - it gets those bodies moving, those minds thinking, and those thoughts whirring about what more girls and boys could be doing in the STEM space, be that further study or a career. We love it!”
“I was impressed by what you managed to achieve in such a short time frame with the age group. Despite some initial reservations about getting involved at the start (mainly from the boys), it didn’t take long before everyone was taking part and enjoying it and learning from it too. I think the session really helped to get some key words embedded in their thinking in the hope that when they went back to the classroom and heard those words again they would have a better idea of what they meant.”

“Until Flux, I never knew you could incorporate science into dance, so this was new to me. I really enjoyed the theme and find that it also helped within my science subject lessons during school hours. I am a visual learner so this way of movement really helped me, talking through why we were using this choreography to express a wave or signal. More so, I also believe it improved my memory. A week before our performance I undertook an exam in science, with having struggled revising signals and transmitters through a town. Despite the struggle, I remembered, the things we spoke about on in our class and the choreography we learnt. I in fact got full marks on the question, only from the work we were doing at Flux. Useful in many ways!”
