The Science Museum of Minnesota’s Theater Department developed the book and storytelling play “Alice in Nanoland” for younger museum audiences. The age range for the story were 4-7 year olds, as the actors stated, “This program is best suited for 7 year olds and younger.” Through the spring and summer of 2010, the actors have performed the show on the museum’s floor for formative evaluation testing.
