Pedro Zany Caldeira and Ana Paula Bossler - Can you tell who's more creative than me?
The participants will be challenged to make three drawings. The drawings will correspond to three different challenges. According to our experience, the answer to each of these challenges will be relatively diverse: some drawings will be relatively common, while others will be very resourceful. The ingenuity of the answers will correspond to different degrees of creativity. Later on typical drawings of children from 9 to 11 years of age will be presented and compared to the drawings made by the participants of our presentation: The drawings of the participants will be much more creative than the drawings of the children.

Anthony Artist - Origami science
Teach science with minimal resources! All schools have paper, so why not put it to good use and teach science through origami? During the workshop, participants will create a penguin, fly, food chain, fortune teller, and samurai helmet. Teachers will experience how creating simple objects using nothing more than folded paper can support student learning across Years 1 to 4. This workshop will provide teachers with practical ideas that link to a variety of programmes of study, such as identifying animals, food chains, animal offspring, functions of flowering plants, and grouping and classifying living things and objects.
