  • About SVF | SVF

    musical theatre virtual reality missions arts workbooks science notebooks NASA certificate The coolest in-school field trip this Fall Scientists, artists, communicators and educators working together. Proudly supported by the SC Arts Commission, the SC SeaGrant Consortium, and Puffin West Foundation Ltd., the Something Very Fishy Musical Theatre Science Outreach STEAM Program is bringing the ocean to elementary and primary students across the globe. ​ This collaborative effort between Educational Entertainment LLC, Clemson University Department of Biological Sciences, and Temple University Klein College of Media & Communication, combines a musical theatre production, underwater virtual reality experiences, and student workbooks in line with state science standards, as a comprehensive IN-SCHOOL FIELD TRIP. ​ ​ The apolitical musical theatre production portrays the key challenges faced by our oceans today and how the ocean and humans are inextricably interconnected. The audience follows Sandy Carson, a young marine biologist conducting coral transplanting research and her arch nemesis Mr. Pidder, an amateur fisherman with little regard for the marine environment. Featuring a cast of underwater puppet characters, Something Very Fishy highlights how everything we do above the surface impacts life below. ​ In addition to the live performance, schools may elect to participate in the Something Very Fishy Aquanaut Training Program where students* experience a 50 minute virtual reality Aquanaut Training Mission led by scientists from Clemson University. Using a combination of 2D and 360 format underwater videos, children will be inspired to ask questions, investigate issues, collect data from virtual dives, develop a plan to save a coral reef and document their missions. ​ Your missions should you choose to accept them are: • Mission 1: Investigate Why Corals are Dying • Mission 2: Explore What We Can Do to Help the Corals • Mission 3: Transplant Super Corals and Restore the Reef Teachers will receive a full classroom set of SVF W orkbooks & SVF Mission Notebooks to use throughout the program. Students completing all missions will receive an official NASA Citizen Scientist Aquanaut Certificate! Our Team Kathy Prosser - the artist Program Creator & Producer at Educational Entertainment LLC I am an independent and commissioned songwriter, musician, playwright and founder of Educational Entertainment LLC (USA) and Possum Music (Australia). We create and deliver educational music and musical productions for corporations, schools, community organizations, businesses and individuals in USA and across Australia. Twice Australia's Children's Songwriter of the Year, my work centers around issues of global environmental, historical and social importance. Most people experience song lyrics they can recall from childhood, and having played piano from age 5, I am passionate about the immense power of learning through music. ​ I have released 4 independent children's music albums under the stage name 'Kathy Possum' and delivered over 800 collective performances of self-penned musical productions 'Something Very Fishy', 'The Country Life', 'Diggin' History', 'The Magic Circle' and 'Exploring Australia'. ​ I am very proud of the work I do and strive to contribute to a peaceful and sustainable planet through sharing my gifts with the next generation and their communities. Dr. Michael Childress - the scientist Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Clemson University I am an evolutionary behavioral ecologist studying the impact of climate change and behavioral adaptations in marine animals. My teaching and research focuses on understanding the impact of habitat loss on the conservation of marine communities. I enjoy training graduate students, undergraduate students and teachers in the methods of experimental marine ecology. At 8 years of age my elementary teacher took our class on a field trip to the aquarium. That was the day I decided to be a marine scientist! I know firsthand how field trips like Something Very Fishy can influence career choices among elementary students and as such, I am thrilled to introduce the ocean to the next generation of marine scientists and stewards of our oceans! Dr. Meghnna Tallapragada - the communicator Assistant Professor at Temple University Klein College of Media and Communication I have a PhD in Communication from Cornell University, an MS in Communication from North Carolina State University, and a BE in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from CBIT, India. I am passionate about combining my background as an engineer and a strategic science communication scholar. Through research I strive to bring science and technology closer to people. My work has been published in journals including Science Communication, Public Understanding of Science, Science and Engineering Ethics, Communication Education, and Public Relations Review. As a teacher, I strive to maintain a safe and inclusive space for students so they can develop into creative thinkers who can, not only help solve current public relations dilemmas but also, feel empowered to better their individual selves. ​ I am excited to be part of the Something Very Fishy assessment process and evidencing how informal learning environments, particularly performing arts can educate students about science. SVF Clemson Creative Inquiry - the future Clemson University, Biological Sciences Our diverse group of undergraduates in Clemson University's Something Very Fishy Creative Inquiry team are responsible for developing and delivering the unique Something Very Fishy Aquanaut Training Program.
