CREATE. BUILD. SHARE.
Join our growing community of makers and make something amazing!

What the community is saying about STEAM!
“[During their field-trip] the students were so engaged that they became different students! As a space that promotes creativity and thinking, project based learning is the future of education…and the direction we need to go.” “freedom to try new things without being afraid to be wrong is what makes the STEAM Centre the uplifting, energized place that it is.’ “[STEAM Staff] were “truly fabulous…letting the students discover things on their own. They went above and beyond my expectation.”
