STEAM Studio + Lab
Art is a natural entry point into inquiry-based learning for children and allows the other four domains to seamlessly connect. Children are naturally curious and learn through hands-on experiences that allow them to ask questions, formulate hypotheses and build knowledge. This leads to identifying problems and coming up with unique and creative solutions, often creating something completely new in the process.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programs offer a wide variety of inquiry-based, participant-driven, and engaging STEAM-focused experiences. Programs vary from introductory 10 to 15 minute activities to in-depth family learning experiences of 30 to 60 minutes. All of their STEAM classes invite children to learn through play. These programs are recommended for ages 3 and up.
Through interaction with STEAM exhibitions and programs, attendees have the opportunity to experience wonder, research, experiment, problem-solve, and most importantly, learn by the game.
The Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum inspires children of all ages and abilities to imagine, explore and connect with their world to make a difference.
