Launch To The Future!

 

Full of scientific facts and figures, this sketch-based comedy presentation focuses on how space programs and lunar science propel us into the future using STEM!


In a series of sketches, professional actor/educators use audience suggestions to create uniquely hilarious scenes that educate on the moon and space science.

Students will learn:

  • How science helps to solve the unsolvable (SCIENCE)

  • Innovation drives technology (TECHNOLOGY)

  • Space engineering helps design new solutions (ENGINEERING)

  • How maths helps to drive the future (MATHS)

Sketches include a worker teaching a boss about the moon, a kooky inventor linking technology to creativity and innovation, a game that teaches about space engineering, and a demonstration of how maths helps explain our universe.

LEARNING AREAS: Science, Mathematics, Technology, The Arts, Health and Physical Education

THEMES: 50th Anniversary of the moon landing, Everyday technologies invented by space science (camera phones, baby formula, wireless headphones, laptops), Galileo Galilei, Satellites, GPS, WiFi, Machine learning and AI, New Zealand's contribution to space science past and present: Dr. William Pickering, Beatrice Tinsley, The NZ Space Agency.

Awesome show and we appreciate the interactive way to engage students. It was exciting to see students who would sit back totally focused and joining in!
