Fusion Science Theater (FST) is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) outreach program that uses the secrets of theater to create shows that actively engage children in learning science. FST Methods increase children’s interest, confidence and understanding of scientific concepts. How do we know? Each show includes an embedded assessment that provides the data to prove it.
Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation, FST shows have been performed by faculty, students, and informal science educators in classrooms, after-school programs, libraries and museums around the country. Selected scripts are available in kits through the Institute of Chemical Education; others are free upon request.
We welcome you to explore the world of FST, where story, science and teaching come together to empower a new generation of science learners.
