Room Setup
The show can be performed anywhere! We will tailor our setup to your specific venue and preferences. However, here is our ideal room setup:

  • Performer on the same level as the audience (no stage).
  • Children seated on the floor.
  • Chairs for adults in the back and/or on the sides.
  • The ScienceTeller will bring blue painter's tape to mark the performance area and a center aisle.

 

Introductions

  • We have an introduction built into our script that describes what we do and the behaviors we expect from an audience.
  • You can simply introduce the performer by their first name, from ScienceTellers. We'll take care of the rest!

 

Photos & Videos

  • We encourage you, and the adults in the audience, to take photos and videos of the show.
  • You can share them with us on Facebook and Instagram: @sciencetellers
