School Age Programs

All participants are required to wear a mask for the entirety of the program. Classes will be limited to 9 students each session. Each program will need a minimum of 5 students to run.

 

School age programs are available to all students between the age of 5 and 13. We ask that families sign their child up for the appropriate section. These programs allow children to experience STEAM based activities and concepts through hands-on experiments, building, and play. Children will have their own table and set of supplies and will not share materials with other program participants.

 

In-person programs are available as well as a Kit for pick up at the Museum Store the Thursday - Saturday between 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. after our program. Print instructions will be provided with the kits.
