On World Book Day 2018, Library members, funders, authors, and illustrators gathered in the Science Museum’s Wonderlab to celebrate the launch of our fantastic Science Alive! series for blind and partially sighted children.
Charity CEO Camilla Oldland opened the event accompanied by Freddie, age 13, who spoke about his visual impairment and how Living Paintings has inspired his love of science and helped him learn independently.
The theme of the night was light; how can we shine a light for blind and partially sighted youngsters to inspire confidence and encourage learning.
Guests were treated to VIP access to the Statoil Wonderlab for one night only, and a very special showcase of science experiments fronted by Freddie and a Wonderlab explainer at the venue’s chemistry bar.
Living Paintings would like to extend an immense thank you to everyone who made the event possible – despite the horrendous weather conditions – and to all the guests who joined us in celebrating our launch.
