Weekend Science Classes for Kids Return at the Fab Lab

Business

The Suncoast Science Center/Faulhaber Fab Lab’s STEAM Saturdays classes are back by popular demand. STEAM Saturdays classes are developed and led by volunteers from the lab’s Student Proposals & Education Committee (SPEC), an innovative leadership program that empowers high school students to pursue their passions while making STEAM learning fun and approachable for students of all ages. The weekly courses provide students from grades 1-12 with a unique opportunity to explore various science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) areas through engaging hands-on activities and the use of high-tech Fab Lab equipment such as laser cutters, vinyl cutters, 3D printers and more.

STEAM Saturdays run weekly from 10 am-1 pm beginning Saturday, October 2. Returning classes include Robotics, Engineering, Chemistry and Art Lab, while new courses like Coding & Artificial Intelligence, Electric Engineering, and Build Your Brand have been added. There are classes to suit every age and interest, from creating spooky pumpkin volcanoes in “Halloween Chemistry” to programming a robot to travel across a zipline in “Engineering” class. No experience is required. Classes are $40 and include all supplies and take-home projects. Limited spaces are available, and sessions sell out quickly. For the full schedule and more information, visit suncoastscience.org/steam-saturdays.
