6 and up
STEAM Studio

Make your own shadow puppets – snowmen, snowflakes, animals and more – in this winter-themed design challenge. Engineer moving parts and choose unique pattern and color combinations. Then, learn about the science of light as you test your creations using flashlights. What shapes are the shadows? What colors? Can you make them appear larger?


STEAM Studio is the place to design, build and create! Drop in for hands-on, minds-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities! Think creatively and solve problems as you experience the fun of making things.
