It’s time for your school to strut their stuff in STEM Rocks the ‘Box 2016! Selected high school students will work beside professional Shadowbox Live artists to learn comedy acting, singing, dance, musical instruments, backstage, costumes, makeup, theater lighting and sound, etc. The students will then prove their knowledge in these fields by performing alongside seasoned actors, singers and musicians for a real audience in a one time only sketch comedy and rock n’ roll show called STEM Rocks the ‘Box. It’s a real life boot camp designed to give students a rare taste of the arts.
“As a former high school administrator, I have witnessed students who were transformed by their experience at Shadowbox. The self-confidence a student gains from participating in a Shadowbox program is difficult to capture in words.” Aimee Kennedy, Vice President Education, Philanthropy, and STEM Learning, Battelle
