STE(A)M Truck

(View Complete Item Description)

STE(A)M Truck is a mobile makerspace that inspires youth to tackle real problems with the support of community experts. We teach youth Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) by bringing tools, equipment and mentors directly to kids and allow youth to have fun while making things with their hands. STE(A)M Truck will have everything from 3D printers, laser cutters to saws and hammers. At ELC we will 1) introduce students to the array of maker tools, technologies and materials; 2) teach students a design thinking problem solving process; and 3) support students to design their solutions and, with the support of community experts, build them. Some past examples include; building a computer using e-waste, carving a wooden spoon, making your own jams and jellies, building your own design thinking toolbox or creating your own toys and games. Who knows what problems kids will want to tackle this summer. Learn more at
