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.

STEAMbox Family Workshop: Shipwreck Detectives
October 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Over 1,300 ships have wrecked off the coast of Maine, each with a story of danger, adventure, heroism, and tragedy. Explore our immersive “Shipwrecks and Salvage” exhibit to understand the technologies, risks, and preservation efforts involved in maritime archaeology, then dive into our historic shipyard to search for clues and solve the mystery of the wreck of an actual Maine Vessel. All ages welcome.
