Scientists Exploring the Arts

Scientists Exploring the Arts

Scientists Exploring the Arts is a free program open to college students (graduate and undergraduate) who are majoring in specific subject areas, including: food science and molecular gastronomy, nutrition, chemistry, chemical engineering, statistics, environmental science, food sensory evaluation, material science, business (finance, sales), marketing, and computer science. The program is sponsored by Ingredion, a leading global ingredients solutions provider specializing in nature-based sweeteners, starches, and nutrition ingredients. This unique partnership between  State Theatre New Jersey and Ingredion celebrates and explores the essential elements shared by the performing arts and science and technology: creativity, innovation, problem solving, teamwork, and process.

Scientists Exploring the Arts offers young scientists an opportunity to experience world-class performances and to learn about program sponsor Ingredion. Students selected to participate receive:

  • A ticket to a performance at State Theatre New Jersey.
  • A pre-performance “Exploration” with one of the performers or artistic staff from the show. The entertaining and enjoyable lecture offers an in-depth, behind-the-scenes introduction to the show and the creative process.
  • A pre-performance dinner, with opportunities to network with Ingredion employees as well as other students.

Program space is limited, with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Participation is limited to one event per person.

This program is made possible through the generous support of
