STEAM Weekends

STEAM Weekends

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education is critically important for young children. When children learn about STEAM, they are learning to indulge their curiosity, ask questions and think critically. 

During STEAM Weekends, the Children’s Museum combines authentic materials, real artifacts and local STEAM experts into a drop-in, hands-on program. STEAM Weekends encourage families to ask questions, test ideas and think critically. 

STEAM programming takes place every Saturday and Sunday. For specific times, check our information boards upon arrival.
