STEM Connection

Movies can teach us many foundational elements of STEM - observation, evaluation, developing hypotheses, sitting still for a longer period on time :-)  Kids are exposed to rich media (aka - video) in a million ways.  When you attend the movie, it's good to talk about the movie-making process: scripting, location scouting, lighting, digital video capture, sound sweetening, pre and post production tasks, etc.  Video is pervasive and the chances of your child interacting with this STEM-tastic element of our world is very high.

  • The Movies at Midway theater is a fantastically affordable theater!  Entry prices are very good, but the special part of this theater is that the candy is only $1.  Yep...$1.  That's really the best part of any movie theater experience.

  • Try the Cinima Art Theatre for a slightly more sophisticated experience.  This is a small theater that highlights artsy films - from as far away as the UK!
