  • Sensory play hour includes a variety of activities from sensory toys to hands on art activities which will help young children learn about the world and explore.

  • As children manipulate objects and explore through their senses, they are developing key strategies to problem solving.

STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics)

 

STEM Workshops

ages vary

 

From coding to engineering challenges to science exploration, our STEM workshops use children's innate curiosity to engage participants in practicing 21st century skills in a non-competative environment. The emphasis is on fun and instilling confidence in participants

While most STEM Workshops are geared to children ages 6 and up, Sensory Activities introduce children ages 2 to 5 to basic science and encourage observational skills.
