STEAM Family Workshops

STEAM Family Workshops are hour-long, hands-on/minds-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) challenges designed to engage children and their caregivers in STEAM skills and ways of thinking. Projects are designed to foster intergenerational learning, to share tools and technologies with participants—often tools or technologies they have not used before—and provide lots of opportunities for creative thinking and expression.

Workshops are designed to challenge the whole family with hands-on projects that encourage participants to solve problems, be creative, and collaborate! Space is limited; first come, first served. You can sign up an hour ahead of time in front of the STEAM Lab.
