Get ready to go full STEAM ahead! PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure begins on Jan. 12 in Westbury, New York, and you’re going to want to catch this total multimedia adventure as it makes it way to over 100 cities nationwide. Read on for all the deets and how you can get tickets to a show near you!
STEAM education—Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics—is definitely the new educational hotness for kids right now, and for good reason. With a growing need for professionals in the science and technology sectors, an early smart is decidedly smart for kids of all ages.
PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure isn’t just an exercise in STEAM learning. It tells the tale of three children, crossing their backyard to get to a friend’s birthday bash. But this isn’t just any ol’ walk across the yard: the kiddos are taken on an awesome adventure that’s filled with STEAM education. The kid characters shrink down to the size of teeny tiny grasshoppers, exploring and solving all kinds of challenges.
The live performance isn’t the only STEAM fun your child will have. Along with the theatrical tale, PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure also includes augmented-reality games (through a partnership with smart playground pioneers Biba) that your child can play on a mobile device before the show, while watching it or after.
If your kiddo is on total sensory overload during the show, sponsor Zappos Adaptive has an answer. Kiddos who need a bit of a break, without having to leave, can grab a pair of noise-reducing headphones or light-sensitivity glasses.
The 2019 tour dates run from Jan. 12 through Feb, 24. To find out if your town is on the performance list or to find tickets, visit the PBS KIDS Live tour website here.
