STEAMbox Family Workshop: Mini Sea Chest

April 13 @ 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).

Ships are cramped spaces and sailors had little room to store their personal things, usually no bigger than a suitcase. This hands-on learning workshop will sharpen your critical thinking and creative skills. Together, families will learn about what sailors took on their long journeys and how they personalized their chests to reflect their adventures. Then, families will work together to construct and decorate their own mini sea chests. 

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