Super Scientific Circus demonstrates how science can be fun

 Super Scientific Circus will be presented at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, in W.M. Turner Auditorium as part of the SFA Children's Performing Arts Series.

Super Scientific Circus will be presented at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, in W.M. Turner Auditorium as part of the SFA Children’s Performing Arts Series.

Area students will learn that science can be fun and exciting when the Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and the Children’s Performing Arts Series once again present Super Scientific Circus in two performances Wednesday, March 7, in W.M. Turner Auditorium.

Widely popular among CPAS audiences, Super Scientific Circus features circus skills, magic tricks, comedy and mime to illustrate fundamental scientific concepts such as gravity, air pressure and ultraviolet light.

The program, which targets students in kindergarten through 12th grade, is designed to “help students understand that science can be appreciated in everything we see and do,” said Diane J. Peterson, SFA Fine Arts Box Office manager and director of the Children’s Performing Arts Series.

Programs like Super Scientific Circus have been favorites among area students and their teachers and are almost always sell-out performances, Peterson said.

“Teachers will want to make reservations for their classes as soon as possible to ensure their students have the opportunity to experience this fun and educational performance,” she said.

Performance times are 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $6 for individuals and $7.50 per person for groups of 20 or more. For tickets or more information, call the Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit www.cpas.sfasu.edu.

This year’s final CPAS performance is Virginia Repertory Theatre’s “The Ugly Duckling,” the Hans Christian Anderson fable of the swan who grows up “ugly” in a family of ducks, later to find his appearance changing as he discovers his true identity. Performances are on Friday, April 27, in Turner Auditorium.

Then, from 8 to 9 p.m., listen to SFA jazz combos as they perform a wide variety of jazz styles. “The small group jazz setting has really allowed the students to be innovative. They are composing and arranging some beautiful music that they are eager to perform,” Scott added.

The Fredonia Brewery will serve beer and other beverages produced at its downtown Nacogdoches facility. Eat a Bite Food Truck will also be on site with sandwiches, burgers and other American fare for purchase.

SFA participates in National African-American Read-In

Stephen F. Austin State University senior Melanie Lynch reads “Anna Hibiscus’ Song” by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia to a group of Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary School students during the National African-American Read-In.

Stephen F. Austin State University senior Melanie Lynch reads “Anna Hibiscus’ Song” by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia to a group of Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary School students during the National African-American Read-In. SFA students and faculty members also read poems to students at Nacogdoches High School.

As giggles hush in the library of Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary School, Stephen F. Austin State University senior Melanie Lynch begins reading “Anna Hibiscus’ Song” by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia.

Recently, SFA students and faculty members participated in the National African-American Read-In, an event promoting diversity in children’s literature and highlighting African-American authors. This is the second year SFA has participated.

“I love being involved with the students and helping improve their educational experience,” Lynch said.

During the read-in, SFA students and faculty members read to students at B.Q.J. Elementary School and Nacogdoches High School. Dr. Lauren Burrow, assistant professor in SFA’s Department of Elementary Education, organized the read-in at the elementary school, while Dr. Heather Olson Beal, associate professor in the Department of Secondary Education and Educational Leadership, orchestrated the high school event.

“The read-in is good for my college students to see how they can make books relevant and connect with their students through characters, authors and the storyline,” Burrow said. “It’s also great to see the elementary students respond to the story and feel good about themselves.”

“Anna Hibiscus’ Song” focuses on happiness and how people express their joy. High school students learned the importance of valuing oneself and others by reading poems from Langston Hughes, Clint Smith, Nikki Giovanni and Kerry Jackson. Students also viewed a video of SFA alumna Nytesia Ross presenting spoken word poetry.

“It’s important for students to know their voices matter and that they can use their voices to change the world like the African-American authors whose works we engaged with as part of the read-in,” Beal said.
