STEAM Stop: Flight

At this all-ages STEAM Stop, you'll learn about the four forces of flight while seeing them in action!  Lift, thrust, weight, and drag work together (or against each other) to make flight possible.  Build and fly planes, helicopters, kites, and rockets, then experiment with the designs and observe the results. Happy flying! 







STEAM Stop: Gross Science

Gross science refers to all the icky, creepy, and downright yucky stuff in science. We have experiments that include: exploding burp bags, making edible scat, creating fake blisters, and more! If you'd like some more information, want to experiment, or this just piques your interest, click here for STEAM Gross Science






STEAM Stop: Survival

STEAM Stop: Performance Science

STEAM Performance, couple dancing, Dj playing music, actors

Did you know that there is a heavy correlation between the arts and aptitude for science and math? While we usually focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, it is important to spend time on the "A" in STEAM. Performance science has activities for every age and ability to encourage creativity and link you to some delightful activities to keep you grooving all summer. Click here for STEAM Performance Science.

Why should kids have all the fun?  This STEAM Stop is designed with adults in mind.  These activities either require bigger supplies, are more complicated in nature, or include the use of materials not safe for children.  Enjoy!
