GUS GOES GREEN: A STEM Adventure – Gus, our giant dog puppet, leads your audience on a STEM-inspired adventure around the globe. He uses clever resources to find creative solutions for a thirsty man in the desert, a wacky inventor, a toy maker and one very funny bug. Audience volunteers join Gus on stage to engineer a device for gathering water, build a unique toy from recycled materials and more! By the end of the play, Gus and his friends use Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to find smart solutions to real-life issues. This show is designed to encourage young people to help the Earth through recycling, energy conservation and creative thinking. Gus Goes Green: A STEM Adventure is best appreciated by audiences in grades Pre-K and higher.

The second play begins at 1p.m .
AMERICAN GIANTS OF SCIENCE – Thomas Edison, Dian Fossey, Benjamin Franklin, Steve Jobs and more all make their appearance in this fast-paced show. In a whirlwind tour through time, your young audience meets some of America’s most famous inventors and scientists. The best part of this program is the audience interaction. We feature audience volunteers onstage that help Ben Franklin fly his kite, work with Alexander Graham Bell on placing a phone call and so much more. This rollicking educational adventure is laugh-out-loud funny. American Giants of Science is best appreciated by audiences in grades 2nd and higher.
