Maker Days 2020-21 school year.png

MAKER DAYS

 

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
$20 Members | $25 Non-Members

To register, please complete our registration form and email it to us or bring it with you to the workshop; you can also sign up via our events page. DUE TO INCREASED DEMAND FOR HOMESCHOOL PROGRAMS, YOUR CHILD'S SPOT IN THE WORKSHOP IS NOT CONFIRMED UNTIL PAYMENT IS PROCESSED.
