The Gaillard Center’s Education and Community Program today released its new virtual education program, "Setting the Stage." The eight-part series features behind-the-scenes videos written, filmed, and produced by the Gaillard Center’s Technical team.
Each of the videos is accompanied by a detailed lesson plan created by the venue's Director of Education, Sterling deVries. Students can do any of the included experiments from home or school and use the provided assessments and rubrics. Specific grade level science standards are covered in these lessons.
All videos and lesson plans are available for free at gaillardcenter.org. You can watch the episodes and download the lesson plans here. Setting the Stage features the following episodes:
“The Gaillard Center’s Education and Community Program is thrilled to present Setting the Stage, a look behind-the-scenes of a world-class theater," deVries said. "The videos highlight STEM-based professionals that use science skills daily to execute performances. The eight videos dive into the technical aspects of a theater and cover the SC State Academic Science and Theater Standards. The Gaillard Center is happy to provide content for our area educators for both in-person and virtual students. We hope these completed lessons will make our teachers' lives a little bit easier and inspire our local students."
