A brand new Theatre of Will STEAM program, sponsored by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, integrating the arts into a curriculum based teaching format for science is being introduced for the upcoming school year 2017-18. It will be a nine week residency program that will utilize theater and visual arts to supplement classroom work for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

This is a pilot program that is only offered in Councilman Paul Krekorian's Los Angeles City Council District 2. Eight Elementary schools will be chosen to receive this exciting new program, funded by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

The program makes NGSS standards come alive in a fun and very educational format for Los Angeles Unified School District fifth graders.

Seasoned Teaching/Artists will come to each chosen school to implement and teach the program. The students' energy efficiency compilations will be performed at a culminating event for the school and general public.

It will feature the use of theater and song to present the completed student work in the school auditorium. Lesson plans for each week of the Residency will be provided at the Professional Development Session with the teachers for the selected schools.
