As the lights go down and the stars come out in the planetarium dome, teenage inventor Magnificent and her little brother Marcus (played by a puppet) explore constellations and dream about traveling to Mars. Suddenly, Dinobot appears (also a puppet!) after “fetching” a ball. This fully sentient Dinosaur Robot Drone and the brother-sister duo discover that through science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM), they can solve problems and follow their dreams.

Mission STEAMpossible is a professional theatrical performance designed to inspire an interest in STEAM studies and careers among K-5th grade students and family audiences. This awe inspiring performance is available for planetariums, science museums, and schools.
