Echo Butlins And Institute Of Physics

  • 2007

Exploring the physics of Butlins with Echo the visiting alien girl.

This was a lovely project in which children and families communicated by text message with Echo, an alien girl (I think at the time we deliberately didn't give her a gender) whose spaceship had crashed in a Butlins holiday camp.

To help Echo repair her ship, children had to answer her questions about the physics of earth by studying some of the rides in the funfair.

All done with printed booklets and text messages.
