Parents are asked to pick up and drop off their children for each session. All parents and students are invited on May 15th at 2:30pm to come and see what it’s all about. From there we will create a schedule and let our future makers loose on the great STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) challenges that we have planned.
