Shooting for the Stars at St Symphorosa School!

Our interstellar-interfaith assembly at St Symphorosa School was out of this world!  This was a remix of our popular theme based program called Shoot for the Stars. The kiddos were extremely inquisitive after our performance so we stuck around for a short Q&A.

St. Sym’s students are “SYMPLY” the BEST, indeed!

While Shoot for the Stars is a theme-based program that was originally created for K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th, all of our program themes can be applied to custom built programs for any literacy levels and has been a smash hit at all-ages community events, science fairs, and nerd conventions as well!
