The STEAM Lab is a space to engage in hands-on science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities that encourage creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking.


STEAM Lab activities vary widely. Depending on when you visit, you might program a robot, design your very own glow bug, build a marble maze, or make an ornament with help from our laser cutter. The STEAM Lab is a great place to try out a new tool or technology, learn something new, and make a fun project in the process!

STEAM Family Workshops

STEAM Family Workshops are 45- minute to one hour long, hands-on/ minds-on challenges designed to foster intergenerational learning and provide opportunities for creative thinking and expression. Space is limited; first come, first served. You can sign up in front of the STEAM Lab.

STEAM Learning and Discovery

Boston Children’s Museum’s STEAM programs and exhibits engage children in the excitement and reward of discovery, learning, and creative problem solving. Spanning ages, challenges, tools, and skills, Museum STEAM activities provide opportunities for hands-on, open-ended explorations that ignite the imaginations of young minds.
