While reporting live, one of The Story Ship’s crew, Sarah, is kidnapped by aliens and trapped on a spaceship bound for the outer regions of our solar system! Audience volunteers must quickly form a Rescue Team and use math, magic, dance, and music to get her back.
The audience helps to unravel musical messages from the aliens using mathematics, sound science and a Chladni Plate. With the Chladni Plate, the kids actually see sound! This device creates visual patterns of sound as sand moves over a vibrating metal plate. Volunteers help to discover a code that allows us to communicate with the aliens.
