STEAMbox Family Workshop: How do Ships Float?!

January 20 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Come join us for our STEAMbox program, where you will explore maritime topics through hands-on learning in STEM + the arts to create, build, and problem solve. All workshops are held on Saturdays from 10:30 am until 11:30 am. Content appropriate for ages 4 – 10 years, but all are welcome. Pre-registration is required, and opens one month in advance. Registration is only necessary for the child(ren) taking part in the activity and one accompanying adult (additional adults are welcome, but not required to register).

Ever wonder how the six mast, 450ft Wyoming ship 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!

STEAMbox programs are generously funded by First Federal Savings, allowing us to offer this program free to the public.
