Additional information

Calling all creative thinkers, hands-on problem solvers, and theater kids! Ever wonder if your curiosity could change the world? Come work with theater artists from CST and science experts from Lemelson-MIT, to explore stories about young people making a difference in their communities. In this two-week class where theater and invention come together, students will choose an inspiring story to adapt, bring it to life on stage, and design and construct a new invention inspired by the tale. The actor-inventors will then showcase their story and creation in a final performance for all to see!
