Program Description

Event Details

We're going to take a technology approach to storytelling. We'll learn about parts of a story before jumping in to use technology to explore different ways to tell stories.  Code a choose your own adventure style game using Twine, give stop motion a try and use MakerLab equipment and supplies to create a scene that tells a story.

Registration opens March 1 at 8am.

STEAM LAB runs in 5 week sessions, each week focusing on one letter from the acronym STEAM with a particular focus. Each week will feature three project tables relating to the theme: a quick project to introduce you to the topic, a technical challenge relating to the topic and an open-ended invitation to explore materials and the topic.  The projects are designed for students age 10-16.  Please register for each week you wish to attend.  You may come any time in the 4-5:30 window and stay as long as you are interested in the activities.
