This hands-on exhibit encompasses numerous STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, & Math) principles and focuses on stimulating creativity in the minds of our visitors.
STEAM is a new educational approach the integrates STEM lessons with ART! In this exhibit, children can make their own crafts from recycled materials in the CRAFTERSPACE. They can draw on our chalkboard wall. There is an ARTSPACE where Makerspace meets art and they can paint, too!

Shaving cream marbling is not only a GREAT art activity that keeps the kiddos engaged all morning long – but it’s a fun sensory activity too! Follow these steps to do this activity at home:
Step #1. Spray shaving cream into a baking tray and then smooth the surface a bit with a spatula (or spoon, hands, etc).
Step #2. Slowly pour liquid paint onto the surface of the shaving cream.
Step #3. Swirl the colors. You can use a craft stick or spoon to swirl the colors together to create a marbled effect.
Step #4. Press paper on shaving cream. Lay a piece of paper on the surface of the painted shaving cream.
Step #5. Gently lift the paper off of the shaving cream.
Step #6. Scrape off the shaving cream with a craft stick or a piece of cardboard.
Step #7. Set the paper aside to dry and repeat with more prints!
