Integrating Music and Arts into STEM curriculum with creative STEAM-focused experiences

Charolette's Web Project

Charolettes Web, 2023

Meadow Creek High School 
Engineering + Music Tech

In the spring of 2023, Meadow Creek High School Theater Teacher John King put on a play Charolettes Web, telling the story of a lucky pig who is shown what an unconventional family looks like.

The stage design was approached through the lens of basic engineering and mathematics. Focus was one up cycling of previously used stage flats and platforms.

Students were organized into groups: Actors, Costuming, Sound/Lighting and Set Building/Props.

As a collaboration, Mr. Budners Music Technology students worked with Mr. Kings Sound/Lighting students to provide the sound cues that best suited the plays atmosphere. Additionally, Mr. Budner’s students were tasked with creating original motifs for each character of the play.
