Could your child be the next local TV personality? Maybe. Adventure Science Center (ASC) and CAM Productions are launching a new TV show premiering this fall on WSMV Channel 4. The show will be an action-packed learning adventure focusing on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) experiments and explorations led by ASC's staff of young STEM educators.
ASC is looking for a host for the new TV show, specifically a local boy or girl ages 10 - 13 years old who has lots of energy and curiosity, and auditions for the hosting role take place Sept. 10 - 11.
"At ASC, we've developed our own particular style of STEM education. We excel at leveraging creativity and real, hands-on interaction to inspire and ignite curiosity for science learning in adults and children of all ages," says Tiffany Farmer, ASC director of education and community outreach. "The upcoming show will allow us to use those talents to share STEM learning in classrooms and homes around the regions," she adds.
Auditions will take place at ASC's Jack Wood Hall on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 3 - 8 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 11 from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Kids who audition will be asked to read or memorize a few short sentences to say in front of a camera, and each audition will take up to three minutes. Audition slots will be available on a first-come first-served basis on the day of the auditions, so arrive early to get in line.
