Show Overview Video

This 40-minute show is for middle school and junior high students (grades 5-9), with focus on science, technology, engineering and math.

In a series of sketches, the actors use audience suggestions to create uniquely hilarious scenes that educate on STEM subjects. The sketches include playing a baseball game to explain the scientific method, a kooky inventor linking technology to creativity and innovation, designing a car to highlight the fundamentals of engineering, and living a “day in the life” of a student to discover how you use math every day.

BrainSTEM includes the live performance at your school, workbooks for your students, teacher guides, and online digital learning games to help your students remember the educational points.
