OPEN DAILY 9:30 to 5

STEAMbox Returns for 2022-2023!

Come join us for our STEAMbox program, 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.

STEAMbox Family Workshops are generously funded by First Federal Savings, allowing us to offer these programs free to the public.  All workshops are held on Saturdays from 10:30-12:00pm. All ages are welcome, content level is appropriate for ages 5+. Preregistration is required, and opens one month in advance.
