Science Alliance Live is an organization that uses live theatre, internet games, and hands-on activities to connect families to scientific research. We have three touring shows available for performances in the Southeast Virginia and Northeast North Carolina Region. Our shows will perform at Old Dominion University starting in the spring of 2013. Our scientists and actors are also available for classroom outreach. If you would like to book a show, a classroom activity, or if you are a scientist who would like to collaborate with Science Alliance Live to create an outreach project, please contact us here.
This opening event for Science Alliance Live took place on November 5th, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the University Theatre. Children and their families saw both shows, heard music performed by Littlest Seed, played a video game, and conducted climate change research.
Highlights included hands-on science activities for the whole family, staged readings of two new plays about scientific research at ODU, puppets, snow cones, and live music. Children saw themselves on television in the arctic using green screen technology and they participated in the making of a documentary film about science education.
