Our last Little STEMmers event this year will roll us right into the new year! This two-part task will involve designing and developing your very own 3D maze. Then, like the winter wind that whirls outside, you’ll generate wind of your own to propel a variety of objects up, down, around, and through your creation!

Happy New Year! Our first Little STEMmers event of 2021 is intended to make creative use of BOXES! Bring boxes of all shapes and sizes as we explore creative ways to reimagine with cardboard. We even invite you to bring cardboard that is NOT a box! As we work to bring our ideas to life, we will consider the size, shape, and strength of our creations and work to make improvements along the way!
