About This Program
Exploring Science Through Song
Using examples, students will explore song structure, rhyme, and meter via songs about science concepts. Examples will pair music and movement, and students will sing and dance as they become familiar with the song that will become the basis of their parody. Students will choose between a given set of options to pick a topic to write a song about. Students will create their own lyrics and rhymes, and will use science facts in their songs. Students will perform their original song for the class at the conclusion of the week.
Typically, residencies range from $2,500 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
- A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
- A required orientation meeting and planning session
- A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
- A student culminating or sharing event
- An evaluation meeting
