Equal parts educational, entertaining, and inspirational, STEM; the Musical is the ultimate Art & Science (STEAM) fusion! What if your homework was to explain the universe and everything in it? In STEM: the Musical, four students are given that very task. Through them, audiences get an introduction to STEM topics in a fun, accessible way. For example, they'll see some of the various ways that math is useful in everyday life, and they'll learn how to engineer the perfect paper airplane while exploring the basic physics behind how it flies. By the end, the four students have learned that if you use STEM, you really can explain the universe and everything in it! Featuring a central inspirational message that STEM is for *all* students, regardless of background, the show surely has something for everyone! With music that never stops in styles including hip-hop, Samba, pop, and Broadway, STEM: the Musical engages audiences all the way from K through 8.
With an inspirational message and STEM content assembled directly from Common Core and NC Essential Standards, STEM: the Musical is designed to ignite an enduring interest in science and mathematics. The mission of STEM: the Musical is to reach students early in their educational careers and inspire them by inviting them to dive into science for the pure joy of it. There are psychological barriers that lead many students to abandon the pursuit of the sciences, causing a lack of diversity in STEM professions. Another goal of STEM: the Musical is to break down these barriers and encourage all students to follow their natural curiosity in science as far as their imagination will take them!
