The Science of Sense

Grasshopper collaborated with Curious Broadcast in producing a children’s science education podcast series for RTEJr Radio in spring/summer 2022.

The Science of Sense is a deep dive into the senses presented by the eccentric Professor Theodore Bumbledumm, his trusted cat Denis and a team of junior scientists. Together they explore the amazing science behind our senses and how we use them to interact with the world around us. The children spoke to scientists including Luke O’Neill, Anil Seth and Aoife McLysaght in their search for for answers. In addition we worked with artist Linda Fahrlin to design six worksheets as an additional resource for the podcast listeners.

All six episodes are available to listen to here
