Inspire your kids to create and innovate! Join us for a new series of Saturday morning workshops based on the "Makerspace" ideology. What exactly is Makerspace? It's a place where kids learn by doing. Eager learners will be introduced to STEM concepts with a focus on engineering and design. They will complete hands-on projects to solve real-world problems. Makerspace learning turns knowledge into action!  The kids will exercise their creativity by building STEM-related projects using a variety of materials. Workshop topics will vary and rotate throughout the year, and will explore STEM-inspired topics such as:

  • coding
  • robotics
  • green screen technology
  • digital story telling
  • animation

Parents! You may either drop the kids off, or stay and get creative with us.
