The National Theatre for Children (NTC) took a visit to Fulton Learning Center (FLC) Tuesday, Nov. 5.
The collaboration was set up through the school’s science lab. All third, fourth, and fifth graders were presented programs by the NTC.
The NTC presented the Louie, Louie program on the basics of electricity; such as how electricity is made, how electricity is used, how to identify dangerous electrical situations, and how to stay safe around electricity.
Louie, Louie was performed by two professional actors who led the FLC students through an interactive, bug’s-eye-view adventure, all while teaching about electrical safety and conservation. In the 30-minute play, Louie the Lightning Bug was shrinking and the FLC city was in turmoil. With every new dangerous electrical situation created by the notorious Electric Eel, Louie got smaller and smaller; soon he was disappearing altogether. However, with the help of FLC students, Louie’s sidekick, Nikki Neutron, was able to stop the Electric Eel and restore Louie back to normal.
Along with the in-school assembly, printed student playbooks, and teacher guides, digital games and activities were also provided to FLC teachers and staff to expand upon the educational content of the program. The entire program was made free to FLC by AEP Texas.
