About The Event

Our student scientists explore science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics during hands-on, creative workshops. Maker Days gives learners the opportunity to create, construct, and make something new at each session.

Maker Days is a drop-off program, and as such it allows many of our home school students to interact with our educators and other students in a classroom setting. These classes are designed to engage, stimulate, encourage, and challenge young children with hands on exploration using a typical class arrangement.   

First Monday & Tuesday of Each Month

9:00 am-12:00 pm

The same lesson is taught on both days

Cost 

$20 Members/$25 Non-Members

15% off additional siblings

Preregistration is required

Please ensure your registration forms have been submitted and tickets purchased. You can fill out our registration form here and either email it to business-office@ecscience.org or bring it with you to the workshop. Your child's spot in the workshop is not confirmed until payment is processed.

2022-2023 SCHEDULE

August 1 & 2: Coding

Join  us as we explore how coding is used in our daily lives, try your hand  at some basic concepts, and get active testing your “codes” with your  friends. We will take on this adventure Bit by Bit.

September 12 & 13*: Flying Wild

Flap,  fly, and flock to the Emerald Coast Science Center and engage in some  bird-themed activities that will teach you about basic bird biology,  bird identification, ecology, and conservation.

October 3 & 4: Wonders of Weather

FLASH! Goes the lightning as it streaks through the sky. BOOM!  Goes the thunder moments later. Why do these two weather phenomena  happen together? Science gives us the answers. Students will create  devices to help us explore the differences between weather and climate  just like a real Meteorologist.

October 31* & November 1: Bubblology

Students  will learn how bubbles form, why they're spherical, how to make a cube  bubble and the science of bubble bursting with each topic related to the  physical laws of the natural world. I promise you’ll be bubbling with  excitement the whole day!

December 5 & 6: Fantastic Fossils

We  are fascinated by fossils, but what do they say about how times have  changed? They tell a tale as old as time -  deep time, that is! Be  transported back in history to a time when dinosaurs walked the Earth  and ancient reptiles swam in the seas as we create our own fossils and  engage in paleontology-themed experiments.

January 2 & 3: Paint it Out

Be  the Bob Ross of your generation in this colorful workshop! Students  will learn how painters can use science to help create immersive art  pieces as well as create some of their own.

February 6 & 7: Mathematical Mayhem

Let’s  bring calculations to life as we take basic math concepts and create 3D  geometric shapes and explore the connections between math, music, and  the outdoors!

March 6 & 7: Float Before you Boat

All  aboard! Students will learn how vessels stay afloat in water, how radio  communication is made possible on board, how to protect our marine  life, and even the engineering behind boat building.

April 3 & 4: Just Hike It

Hiking  is a perfect way to explore nature! Students will engage in hands-on  activities and lean everything they need to know about hiking including:  proper gear to wear, food to bring, safety precautions, navigation, and  our natural, historic, and scenic resources found on the trail and how  to protect them, too.

May 1 & 2: Eat Your Science

Snacks  and science, a combo you don’t want to miss out on. Students will delve  into food chemistry, learn how scientists test foods, and explore why  healthy choices are important for our diet.
