Upcoming STEAMboat Workshops (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) - Fun & Educational Hands-On Workshops for Kids!

Squishy Circuits - We use electronics every day, but how do they work? Come learn about electricity while building circuits using our special play dough. Light up an LED, make a buzzer buzz, or power a motor to make it spin! Playing with electricity has never been so safe and fun.  TUESDAY April 22 3:30pm to 5pm

Substance Science - Mix up some ooey gooey fun. Follow the recipes and use your measuring skills to make multiple moldable materials. By creating and playing with these substances, we will explore non-newtonian fluids, suspension vs solution, viscosity, and more.  WEDNESDAY April 23, 3:30pm to 5pm

Wire Loop Game - Build your own game and a circuit too! Bend your wire as much as you want to make the game easy or hard. Then guide the loop wand along the serpentine wire without letting them touch. If the wires touch, you lose the game, but complete a circuit! Tuesday May 6 3:45pm – 5pm

Smart Art - Get smart by making art. See science in action when you use household and repurposed materials to manipulate and create. Learn how to use absorption, resistance, oxidation, and more to make your next work of art. Wednesday May 7 3:30pm – 5pm

Stick Bombs - Not your grandma’s dominoes. Explore the power of kinetic energy by assembling a series of stick bombs and releasing the chain reaction for an epic stick explosion. You will get to try various patterns and experiment to see which spring-loaded contraption erupts with the most force. Safety glasses recommended.   Tuesday May 13 3:30pm – 5pm 

Glow Signs - Light it up! Use light and science to make your own customized sign. Light travels in a straight line, so when light hits a barrier, that barrier is illuminated. Draw your design, etch it into plastic, and light it up! Using a simple circuit with an LED and battery, you’ll have your own portable display that you can put just about anywhere! Wednesday May 14 3:45pm – 5pm

Building Symmetry - Create 3D shapes from 2D cutouts. Use your shapes to build a symmetrical city. Measure carefully to create mirror images using math and design your own mini world! Tuesday May 20 3:30pm – 5pm

Substance Science - Mix up some ooey gooey fun. Follow the recipes and use your measuring skills to make multiple moldable materials. By creating and playing with these substances, we will explore non-newtonian fluids, suspension vs solution, viscosity, and more. Tuesday May 21 3:30pm – 5pm

Squishy Circuits - We use electronics every day, but how do they work? Come learn about electricity while building circuits using our special play dough. Light up an LED, make a buzzer buzz, or power a motor to make it spin! Playing with electricity has never been so safe and fun. Tuesday May 27 3:30pm – 5pm

String Puppets - Have you ever stopped to think how your body is able to bend and move? Together we will analyze how joints allow parts to move. Use what you learned to design and make your own puppet to take home. Wednesday May 28 3:30pm - 5pm
