Author Gill Arbuthnott Visits EA

Dracula Detectives – Fangs for the Fun!

Author Gill Arbuthnott will be in the library on Wednesday 15 November, to deliver three incredibly exciting and innovative science workshops to all of our S1 cohort. Pupils will discover who in their class is a vampire and, ultimately, who in their class is Dracula. We are all looking forward to fun, interactive sessions, which will use the scenario of an outbreak of vampirism in a village to demonstrate how infectious diseases spread, and how the source can be traced. Gill’s visit will link into our Science department’s Health Technology unit, which focuses on micro-organisms, medicines and diseases and also into our Library’s Germ Wars book talks and activities for S1. This visit will show our pupils how exciting, fascinating and rewarding science subjects can be and will also be a wonderful way to inspire them as readers. The workshops have been made possible by Scottish Book Trust’s Live Literature scheme.
