Exploring science and traditional arts


collaborating with...



The Science Ceilidh is an award-winning educational project bringing people together through science and traditional arts.

As a band, we've had over 12,000 dancers up and moving from all around the UK from simulating your immune system with the Dashing White Blood Cell to swinging your partner DNA base-pairs in the Orcadian-Strip-the-Helix or learning about light in the Fluorescence Fling, linking communities with real research through the arts. 

Our education programme has worked with over 8000 pupils in both primary and high schools exploring the interdisciplinary science behind music, creativity and learning along with breaking stereotypes about Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths career!
