Abstract: We envision a set of activities, termed Theatrical Modeling, for engaging students in collectively modeling solar systems and celestial phenomena from multiple perspectives. Theatrical modeling hybridizes participatory theater with agent-based modeling to support representational practices at the intersection of science and the arts. Drawing on experiences from a six-iteration design study with 5th grade students, we discuss theoretical underpinnings of theatrical modeling and how we believe it promotes perspective-taking in both scientific and social modes.
