Researchers from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research joined with 11 other researchers from across Newcastle University at Seven Stories National Centre for Children’s Books to use children’s books as a way of explaining the big ideas in their research. In order to share their research projects, the researchers led creative engagement workshops with storytelling, exercises and dialogue. Primary school children then became co-researchers and critical friends during the day and shared their understanding of the research.
