Robot Workshop: Robot workshops are a great learning adventure for both parents and children. Parent and child work closely with a STEM Instructor to build a functional robot to take home. Learn about following instructions and how gears, circuits, and other mechanical parts work. Each workshop will focus on a different type of robot. All robots are produced by OWI Robot Kits. Workshop intended for students 8 years and older. NOTE: Robot may take longer to build than the 2 hour workshop
Dissection Workshop: Designed for parent and child (ages 7 and up) to attend together as a learning team! A Discovery Center STEM Instructor will guide participants in learning about animal classification, identifying features of specific specimens, and a guided dissection experience. Come join us for one of these unique learning adventures!
