If you live in Central Massachusetts, sometimes it can be hard making the trek into Boston to attend STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) enrichment programs with your kids. Luckily, close to home, is the Worcester Think Tank. The Worcester Think Tank offers many STEAM based hands-on youth programs for kids ages 8 - 17.
This summer, the Worcester Think Tank is hosting 2 weeks of summer programs with planned hands-on STEAM projects in science, technology and art. All classes will take place at Technocopia's Maker Space or outside on the Worcester Common. Summer programs will be held the weeks of August 7 and 14th, 2017.
Saturday, May 13, 2017, middle school girls (grades 6-8) will have the opportunity to participate in a free program "Girls Space Day Adventure" being held at MIT's Johnson Ice Rink. This is a FREE program in which young women can participate in hands-on activities while learning about the role of science & engineering in space exploration. They young women will also have a chance to meet and interact with women engineers and scientists.
This event is hosted by The Society of Women Engineers, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, MIT AeroAstro department and the MIT Women's Graduate Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Welcome! I'm Debbi and I'm so glad you're here! As a mom of two boys I found it difficult to find resources on STEM programs for my kids. I spent hours researching which resulted in my kids having some amazing STEM opportunities. I want to share information with other families. I try to focus on free or low-cost events so that opportunities are available to children no matter their family's income level.
