Arts & Scraps


The Stations Construction Team is a committee of volunteers and staff that are tasked to design and build interactive learning stations that will be featured at events and may find a home in our classroom.

What are stations?

Stations are hands-on, interactive, exhibits, designed for the purpose of allowing curiosity and exploration for children. These installations have to be intuitive and self-guided, and most of all, FUN! We try our best to incorporate a principle of STEM that can be learned simply by engaging with our stations but it isn't a requirement so long as it allows children and students to be inventive and creative.

Our first few meetings will be virtual.
