Wonder Workshop

Enhance your at-home learning with Wonder Workshops at the Amazeum!

Are you distance learning this year? We've designed Wonder Workshops for you! Wonder Workshops are a 4-week series designed to provide playful and safe learning experiences for at-home learners ages 6-11. In this child drop-off program, each weekly experience explores concepts of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through creative, hands-on explorations. We scaffold our adventures from week to week, adding a deep-dive, interactive experiences to each workshop. Join us for what is bound to be a WONDER-FULL time!

In order to create a safe, healthy, interactive learning experience, new safety requirements apply while participating in Wonder Workshops. Each workshop has limited capacity to allow children to physically distance during the workshops. Each child will receive their own supplies and materials for added safety-no sharing required. Full details available in this FAQ sheet.
