At PS 171 in Astoria, thanks to the magic of drama, Teaching Artists Jacqueline Raymond and Moira Trachtenberg transformed themselves into visiting scientists Dr. Phenomenon and Dr. Marvel. The 3rd-grade students also transformed—becoming expert scientists who were relied upon to conduct their own experiments at four laboratory stations! Each lab group recorded their observations and deductions to discover laws of magnetism. It was an enjoyable way to both foster independent thinking and experience dramatic creativity in a first-hand immersive environment!
