Join us each month:

September 7 - Let’s put our brains to the test. Join us for an A-maze-ing STEM adventure to kick off the start of a new school year! Unleash your creativity while designing a marble maze out of everyday household items.

October 5 - Spooktackular science! Come celebrate the season of tricks and treats while making your own flying ghosts and erupting pumpkins. Hands on crafts and experiments will have a silly (not scary) Halloween theme.

November 2 - Learn about stored energy and test out different construction methods while experimenting with catapults. Participants will explore tension, torsion, and gravity while testing how far they can launch a marshmallow with their DIY catapult.

December 7 - Let it snow! Come celebrate the start of the winter season while making snowballs and snow paint. Participants will experiment with different mixtures and solutions and create their very own snowy masterpiece to take home.
