How Gregory’s Girl taught kids about science

Cinelive and BFI Education, with support from Wellcome Trust, joined forces to deliver a project exploring the science of human attraction, all inspired by the cult British classic, Gregory’s Girl.

What’s the Grey Matter with Gregory? incorporated the much-loved 1980s film Gregory’s Girl into screenings and workshops at nine locations across the UK, from Inverness to Canterbury.

Film Hub Scotland, Film Hub Wales and Film Hub South East helped to contact and engage school groups to attend, and the workshops combined the expertise of directors, science researchers, producers, venue managers, teachers, arts professionals, and educators.

“The lesson learnt by the pupils in terms of human behaviour and relationships will hopefully be reflected on by pupils and staff throughout their lives.” – Teacher, Swansea
