STEAM Family Workshops

Hands-on Learning and Making Together

STEAM Family Workshops are hour-long, hands-on/minds-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) challenges designed to engage children and their caregivers in STEAM skills and ways of thinking. Projects are designed to foster intergenerational learning, to share tools and technologies with participants—often tools or technologies they have not used before—and provide lots of opportunities for creative thinking and expression.
