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 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. This program is for ages 5-11.
First Tuesday of Each Month
9:00 am-12:00 pm
$20 Members | $25 Non-Members
