STEM Like You've Never Experienced It Before
Join a Center for Puppetry Arts puppeteer/Teaching Artist for a celebration of puppetry and STEM! You’ll discover how Science curriculum (such as animal habitat and the weather) inspires some of our favorite puppet shows, and take a peek at the Technology behind the spectacle of those performances (including the computers, lights and sound systems we use to create our puppetry magic). Glimpses at our incredible Worlds of Puppetry Museum will highlight the Engineering behind the design and build of Jim Henson puppets as well as puppetry traditions from across the world. A Create-A-Puppet Workshop™ will celebrate the Math applications utilized in making your own one-of-a-kind puppet (shapes, angles, measuring, symmetry, fractions).
