Welcome to Full STEAM Ahead!

This series of free classes spans four sessions, with each session focused on the science behind a different area of art – photography, ceramics, mobiles, and metalworking. This class is part of a local Girl Scout Gold Award Project by Rowan Dothager. 

This free after-school class, appropriate for students in 5th through 8th grade, meets on Tuesdays from 4 to 5pm, March 26th, and April 2nd, 9th, and 16th.


Session One: Solar Prints

Students will investigate chemistry by making solar prints, also referred to as cyanotypes, and talking about the science behind photography.


Session Two: Pinch Pots

In the ceramics session, students will make pinch pots, while learning about engineering using different types of ceramic materials.


Session Three: Hanging Mobiles

The session on mobiles will give students the opportunity to learn about physics in a real hands-on context.

Session Four: Blacksmith Jewelry

Finally, by creating metal jewelry, students will learn about metallurgical engineering and the skill of blacksmithing.
