STEM Mondays

Livestream Learning Studio is a live, award-winning, year-long school subscription service that delivers STEM enrichment through the thrill of the creative arts.

With weekly virtual theatre programs and supplemental curriculum for grades 3-5, the Studio delivers dynamic e-learning experiences that align with state and national education standards.

We all know that live, interactive learning resources work best in the classroom – and we have the data to prove it. Now Livestream Learning Studio can teach live at scale using our proprietary technology, delivering:

8 STEM
LIVESTREAM TITLES

Plus 64 virtual live experiences throughout the school year, all accessible through our event portal

The Studio comes from the minds behind The National Theatre for Children (NTC), which has been delivering effective K-12 education programs to schools since 1978. Both Livestream Learning Studio and NTC know that educational programs enhanced by the creative arts deliver learning through laughter. That’s especially important in the world of STEM: encouraging students to explore science, technology, engineering and math at an early age sets them up for success later in life.

Through live, interactive theatre, standards-aligned activities and readymade lesson plans, the Studio delivers easy-to-use lessons that not only educate students in the world of STEM – they also excite and inspire them.

We offer 164 live STEM events throughout the year! Take a look at our 2022-23 STEM-themed programs: 

Environmental Stewardship

  • How conservation affects the environment
  • Benefits of composting and biodegradables
  • Ways you can conserve resources
  • How reducing and reusing everyday items can help the environment

Next Generation Science Standards

4-ESS3-1: Earth and Human Activity
Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

ESS3.A: Natural Resources
Energy and fuels that humans use are derived from natural sources, and their use affects the environment in multiple ways. Some resources are renewable over time, and others are not.

5-ESS3-1: Earth and Human Activity
Individual communities use science to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.

5-ESS2-2: Earth’s Systems
Describe and graph the amounts of salt water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth’s Surface Processes
Nearly all of Earth’s available water is in the ocean. Most fresh water is in glaciers or underground; only a tiny fraction is in streams, lakes, wetlands and the atmosphere.

Math Skills for Life

  • The history of math
  • Why the math you learn today will help you later
  • The unexpected uses of math
  • Careers that require math skills

Common Core Math Standards Grades 3-5

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

The Solar System

  • The sun is a star
  • Earth’s place in the universe
  • How gravity affects the planets
  • What escape velocity is

Next Generation Science Standards

5-ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe
Support an argument that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from the Earth.

5-PS2-1: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down.

Infrastructure & Engineering

  • Types of math used in engineering
  • How roads and bridges are built
  • Building and maintaining our country’s infrastructure
  • Careers in engineering

Next Generation Science Standards

3-5-ETS1-1 Engineering Design
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time or cost.

3-5-ETS1-2 Engineering Design
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

3-5-ETS1-3 Engineering Design
Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

Ecosystem Science

  • What is an ecosystem
  • Definition of an animal species
  • Traits are inherited from one generation to the next
  • Different ecosystems depend on each other
  • Life cycles of different organisms

Next Generation Science Standards

5-LS2-1 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers and the environment.

3-LS1-1 From molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction and death.

3-LS1-1 From molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

Ancient Civilizations

  • Engineering marvels of the ancient world
  • How math was used in ancient civilizations
  • How ancient structures were built

Next Generation Science Standards
