Immerse your child in hands-on experiments that explore chemical reactions, electricity, material properties, circuitry, and more! Each month, we’ll have new experiments prepared to inspire your young scientists! Each two hour meetup includes a minimum of two experiments.
What does my child need to bring?
Absolutely nothing! We will provide all the necessary materials and safety equipment! We only ask that your children wear closed toe shoes and if they have long hair, to tie it up for better safety.
Can I leave my child at the space for the session?
Yes, there will be two instructors who supervise the session. Contact information will be recorded at the beginning of each session in case the parent/guardian needs to be reached.
Who will be supervising the children?
Daisy Nodal has worked as an instructor at UCP South Florida for over 5 years and now creates custom STEAM learning experiences at Moonlighter Makerspace. Tom Pupo is an instructor at Florida International University and teaches various Maker educational programs at the Makerspace.
What age should my child be to participate?
We recommend the ages of 7-12
Will any food or snacks be provided?
We have juices and chips available for sale in our snack shop. You can also leave a snack with your child in a lunch box.
Can my child keep their creations?
The materials are for community educational use, so they will have to leave the experiments at the space.
