After five successful years of presenting the Drama Desk Award-winning That Physics Show, three years of That Chemistry Show, and a year of That Inventions Show, Broadway and Off-Broadway producer Eric Krebs has announced the creation of the nonprofit Science Theater Company (STC). Digital and other dramatic science demonstration programs offered by STC will build on the educational and entertainment achievements of Krebs’ previous productions. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Science Theater Company will be able to vastly increase the size and diversity of the audiences served, and particularly include those currently underserved by science programming.
The mission of the Science Theater Company states that science is most effectively taught through combining Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. STEAM education’s integrated approach focuses on critical thinking and solving real world problems. STC programming uniquely captivates, empowers, and educates audiences who previously might have thought that science was inaccessible, inexplicable, boring, or irrelevant. It also counteracts science illiteracy and denial by increasing understanding and confidence that scientific principles are based on objective, verifiable facts and experiments.
Science Theatre Company (STC) presentations will motivate audiences of all ages to continue to explore, support, and learn about science. Our unique demonstration presentations will help by educating and inspiring adults and children to trust and rely on science to solve problems and make the world a better place.
