The Science Museum is inviting children, adults and families to get involved with the debate about genetically modified crops at a special ‘Talkaoke’ event which will take place during the Easter Holidays (14 – 16 April 2009).
The museum wants to engage younger audiences and encourage them to air their views on a topic which it says is normally restricted to adult discussion. The event takes its inspiration from ‘Future Foods’ a free temporary exhibition at the Science Museum investigating both sides of this hot topic.
‘Talkaoke’ is a live, people-led talk-show based around a multimedia “doughnut of chat”. Conversations are filmed and projected live onto screens in the Antenna Gallery where the event is taking place.
Facilitated by a several different scientists everybody will get the chance to voice their view on the issues surrounding genetic modification.
