Thank you to the Alex City Arts Organization under the direction of president Mary Perry for inviting 300 Central High School students to watch the performance of “Einstein!” This multi-curricular event included a lesson in the arts, science, world history, and humanity. The solo performance from Jack Fry took the students back to World War I Berlin, Germany, and follows both Einstein’s personal and professional struggles. Einstein, played by Fry, encouraged the students to embrace their imagination and to persevere despite life’s challenges and other people’s doubts.
Fry even got the student audience involved and on stage in two of his experiments. Pictured are Reese Lee and Hunter Denney who helped with the gravity experiment and Hunter Denney, Antoneo Grant, Tanner Hill, LaDarrian Ransaw, Josh Harrison, and Emmanuel Munoz who assisted with the thought experiment. Before attending the performance students completed a standards-based study guide which provided a foundation for student-teacher discussions after viewing the performance. Thank you to PTO president Maressa Woodfin Ware for the pictures.
