STEAM Studio + Lab
Art is a natural entry point into inquiry-based learning for children and allows the other four areas to connect seamlessly together. Children are naturally curious and learn through hands-on experiences that allow them to ask questions, form hypotheses, and construct 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 Math) programs offer a wide variety of inquiry-based, participant-focused, and engaging experiences focused on STEAM. Programs vary from 10–15 minute introductory activities to in-depth 30–60 minute family learning experiences. All of their STEAM classes invite children to learn through play. These programs are recommended for children ages 3+ yrs.
Through interaction with STEAM exhibits and programs, participants have the opportunity to experience wonder, inquiry, experimentation, problem-solving and are most importantly learning through play.
Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum inspires children of all ages and abilities to imagine, discover, and connect with their world to make a difference.
