Maker Series

Empowering youth through Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

The Discovery Place Maker Series connects youth to science, technology, engineering and math to inspire a life-long interest in STEM fields.

The Maker Series ignites a passion for the exciting world of STEM topics such as space, chemistry, engineering, digital fabrication and circuitry. Students will participate in age-appropriate maker activities, use creative thinking to solve real-world challenges, and experience STEM in a collaborative environment.

Week 1 - Engineering: Students will be challenged to engineer a solution to a real-world scenario.

Week 2 - Circuitry & Design: Students will learn the basics of circuitry and how it can be used to create unique, wearable art.

Week 3 - Space: Students will learn about basic rocket propulsion using balloons, as well as learning about constellations found in our night sky.

Week 4 - Programming: Students will learn the basics of programming, including navigating challenges using a robot.

Week 5 - Digital Fabrication: Students will learn about digital fabrication and get hands-on experience with 3D Pens.

Week 6 - Chemistry: Students will visually learn about acids and bases using colors and the pH scale.

Lastly, we will conclude with The End of Series Celebration on February 25, from 1 p.m. — 2 p.m.
