Science Theater

 A co-production of BADM and The Train Theater 

Dive ‘underwater’ to meet Lottie the Otter and her river friends! This one-of-a-kind, playful workshop explores ecosystems and environmental science by supporting students to identify a problem from Lottie’s story and helping her design solutions. We’ll combine explorations of light and shadow through shadow puppetry and maker-minded puppet design. You’ve never seen children’s theater like this!
