Investigate STEAM-powered fun at our Homeschool Workshop! Discover new train-themed concepts and apply them to your own invention, art project, machine or game. Workshops are multidisciplinary and include hands-on projects, guided activities, tours and demonstrations.
The drop-in program goes from 10 AM to 1 PM. Every student is given a personalized introduction and detailed instructions before embarking on open-ended activities. A guided presentation or tour every half hour delves deeper into the topic of each workshop.
