Science Center Classes for Kids Back at the Fab Lab
The Suncoast Science Center/Faulhaber Fab Lab’s (SSC) STEM Saturdays classes are returning by popular demand! Launched in fall 2019, the classes take students in grades 2-12 on a hands-on exploration into various science, technology, engineering, art, and math areas.
STEM Saturdays run every week from October 17 to January 30. Popular classes from last year including Robotics, Engineering, Chemistry, and Art Lab will return, and new themes like Biology, Coding, Math, Meteorology, Music Science, and Neuroscience will be added.
All classes are developed and led by high school students from the Student Proposals & Education Committee (SPEC), a SSC program that cultivates the leaders of tomorrow by empowering them to pursue their passions while making learning exciting for younger students. From theme selection and curriculum development to project prototyping and volunteer training, all aspects of the class development are managed by SPEC students.
Whether you want to design a custom vinyl sticker for your trick-or-treat bag in “Art Lab” or extract DNA from berries in “Biology”, there are classes to suit all ages and interests. Each class is $40 and runs from 8:30am-12:30pm. Limited spaces are available and enhanced health and safety policies are in place to protect participants amid COVID-19.
