Dunkirk: The Dynamo Challenge
Connect your students with the heroic events surrounding Dunkirk via Christopher Nolan's action thriller, Dunkirk with our brand new resource.

Targeted at 12-16 year olds, and a perfect resource to support history, PSHE/PSE/SMSC or citizenship lessons, The Dynamo Challenge presents a series of team building challenges centred around three narrative perspectives from the air, land and sea.

You can also enter your school into The Dynamo Challenge competition. Task your students to create a group 3D art installation to commemorate the events at Dunkirk, submit a photo to competitions@intofilm.org OR tweet us @intofilm_edu and be in with a chance of the artwork being displayed at Dover Castle alongside the costumes from the film! The deadline for entries is midday on Friday 21 July 2017. Read more about the terms and conditions for entering.

Dunkirk: The Dynamo Challenge was produced by Into Film and SUPER., in partnership with Warner Brothers.
