Fall into fun with interactive S.T.E.M. activities. Classes explore the world of circuitry as your children create light-up masks, build space ships and robots, construct a drawing machine and craft jack-o-lanterns that light the evening skies. Classes are offered on Tuesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. for children in grades K-2. For children in grades 3-5 classes are offered on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m.

We are currently enrolling for classes in October and November. Book now! Call Heather at 814-262-0732 x247. Space is limited.
