Boston Children’s Museum is now offering Einstein’s Workshop’s popular hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design, Math) classes and workshops to Museum members and visitors. Students in grades K-5 can choose from a variety of weekly classes, and one-day seminars, or try out something new with a short one-hour workshop. Einstein’s Workshop classes and workshops combine exposure to the process of creative problem solving, with instructor-led use of software and other tools, such as 3D printers, and offers children learning opportunities that they would normally not have access to in school or at home.
