IT’S THE FUNKY DRUMMER

Drummer with 80’s indie smash

band Scritti Politti, Tom Morley has

had a fantastic and colourful career

and is a specialist in corporate team

building incorporating anything from

drumming to inspirational speaking.

He has been a super generous

supporter of STEAM Co. having

supported a number of days and

events since keynoting at our

Kidcrafters launch event about the

world’s most popular toys - the stick

and the cardboard box.

We’re working with Tom on the

development of a ‘Funky Drummer’

activity that can be delivered by any

community on their STEAM Co. Day.

He’s always available to bring a

STEAM Co. Day to life with his van full

of Djembe drums from West Africa.

Daily Telegraph simply said ‘rich’.

But not everyone can win a TV

talent show or play for a Premiership

footy team. They need a ‘Plan B’.

And inspiration. With STEAM Co.

Inspirators, we want to connect the

UK’s world famous creative talent

with school communities.

But not just for a quick photo

opportunity that’s soon forgotten.

TO EVERY FAR FLUNG CORNER

We want to create activity packs

with briefing films and resources

with Inspirators that can be delivered

by carers in communities across the

UK on their STEAM Co. Days.

CHILDREN UNDERSTAND
