High school and high school students have a lot to tell. In this project we encourage you to create your own scientific monologues.
It is a project of scientific education through the performing arts that promotes scientific-technological vocations in young people, with new pedagogical methodologies.
Ciencia Show promotes scientific and technological vocations among young people from 3º-4º of ESO, Bachillerato and FP, through MONÓLOGOS of type "Stand-Up Comedy" (humorous monologues) with an innovative element that only Big Van has developed to date: educational monologues with Scientific Content.
Ciencia Show is structured in 3 phases:
Big Van presents its "Show of Scientific Monologues of Science Show" in different cities or geographical areas of Spain. In each city in which the Show of Scientific Monologues is presented, a theater or auditorium is chosen to which the teaching staff must move their students. The Show of Scientific Monologues is presented during school hours, and is specifically designed and directed to young people between 13 and 18 years old (2nd cycle of ESO, Bachillerato and FP).
Once the young people and their faculty have attended the "Show of Scientific Monologues of Science Show", they are the ones who happen to have all the focus of the project, since it opens the possibility of participating in "The Science Gallas of Science Show " To participate the students must record a YouTube-type video in which they present their own scientific monologue. This can not last more than five minutes and the subject must be related to science or technology. To ensure the participation of students in "The Science Galleries of Science Show", Big Van teaches the "Science Show for Teachers in creation of monologues scientists. "In this way, teachers increase their narrative and artistic abilities to talk about science in the classroom, and can motivate and help their students to participate in" The Science Galleries of Science Show ".
Once the videos have been received with the scientific monologues made by the students, Big Van makes a preliminary selection and the "Scientific Galas de CienciaShow" are implemented.
First a "Local Scientific Gala" is held in each city or geographical area in which Big Van has implemented its "Scientific Monologue Show". In each "Local Scientific Gala", up to a maximum of eight young people present their scientific monologues live, in front of real public.
Through a jury composed of members of the cultural, educational and scientific community of the area, a "Local Representative" was chosen. To encourage the participation of teachers and students in this phase of the Science Show project, the educational center chosen as "Local Representative" will receive a Molecular Biology Experimental Kit valued at € 500, courtesy of the educational company Bioted.
Likewise, the "Local Representative" will be awarded with Virtual Reality Glasses, or a similar award related to the field of science and technology.
The "Local Representatives" chosen in each geographical area participate in the "Final Scientific Gala" that takes place within the framework of the scientific dissemination congress Naukas Bilbao. From this "Final Scientific Gala" a "National Representative" is chosen, who participates the next day in the Naukas Bilbao Event, presenting his scientific monologue at the Euskaldu Palacena.
CienciaShow es un proyecto de Big Van Ciencia patrocinado por: Cátedra de Cultura Científica de la Universidad del País Vasco.
In Salamanca, it is sponsored by the Salamanca City of Knowledge and Culture Foundation.
In the Canary Islands, the organization has the support of the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and the Information Society (ACIISI), of the Ministry of Economy, Industry, Trade and Knowledge,
The case of Madrid is somewhat special and the finalist arises from the Vicálvaro Monologues contest, organized by different educational centers of the Community of Madrid and in which we collaborate together with the Observatory for the Study and Development of Educational Innovations of the Rey University Juan Carlos.
