STEAMbox Family Workshop: How do Ships Float?!

March 18, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Come join our free STEAMbox family workshops, where you will explore maritime topics through hands-on learning in STEM + the Arts. Create, build and problem solve to figure out how large ships are able to float, or how animals survive in the winter. Pulling from our collections and our surrounding environment, you will learn about sailors’ lives from long ago and how some of the smallest organism on our planet can have the biggest impact on our lives. All workshops are held on Saturdays from 10:30-12:00pm. STEAMbox programs are generously funded by First Federal Savings, allowing us to offer this program free to the public.  All ages are welcome, content level is appropriate for ages 5+. Preregistration is required, and opens one month in advance.

Ever wonder how the 6 mast, 450ft Wyoming boat kept afloat while carrying 6,000 tons of coal? Join us as we learn about and experiment with concepts such as density, buoyancy and displacement. Then, test your knowledge as you create a boat and see how much weight it can carry and still float!
