We propose a one hour interactive workshop that introduces participants to the tools of theatre as means to becoming more engaging and inspiring educators. We will help participants incorporate critical ingredients of a stage play, such as storytelling, in their lesson plan, as a way to improve structure and delivery of content. The workshop is geared towards STEM educators of all disciplines and school levels, and its objective is to provide practical tools enabling educators to engage their students, raising their curiosity and interest in the topics they deliver.
