Theater and Drama of Science

Bring to center stage the ultimate drama of life: the captivating stories of scientific discoveries! Women who had to fight for scientific education and recognition. Scientists who were ridiculed and persecuted for their breakthrough discoveries. Scientists who grappled with the potential harm their discoveries could bring to the world.
This unique program introduces you to scientific concepts and phenomena and immerses you in the world of theatrical techniques. Engage in hands-on activities as you create costumes and bring to life numerous vignettes inspired by classical plays, weaving together the art of theater and the wonders of science.
Collaborate in teams to develop creative and critical thinking skills, fostering an environment where imagination meets knowledge. Join us on this theatrical journey where science takes the spotlight, and every discovery is a captivating act waiting to be revealed. Let’s ignite the stage with the thrilling drama of scientific exploration!
