More than 120 Zephyr Cove Elementary students participated in Get in the Act’s Science Action Theater between January and March.

The program combines theater techniques with guided inquiry to engage students in lessons that investigate science concepts through investigative improvisations. Students explored concepts such as “Energy: Light and Sound” and “Weather on the Move.”

“The program is fabulous,” fifth-grade teacher Theresa Eymann said in a press release. “Get in the Act enhances classroom curriculum and students develop critical-thinking skills that connect with their world.”

Students also participated in the Nevada STEM Coalition in Las Vegas from March 8-10.

Get in the Act’s programs at Zephyr Cove are made possible with support from the Zephyr Cove Parent-Teacher Organization, National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada Arts Council, The Leonette Foundation, Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club, US Bank, Vail Echo Resorts Foundation and The Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.
