About The Event

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

Maker Days is designed as 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 Tuesday of Each Month

9:00 am-12:00 pm

Cost Science Tots (Ages 4-6): $20 Members/$25 Non-Members

Science Explorers (Ages 7-11): $20 Members/$25 Non-Members

Please fill out our registration form here and either email it to business-office@ecscience.org or bring it with you to the workshop.
