'Make' a Difference for Kids in the STEAMlab- Begins November 22nd
Our goal is to inspire the next generation of creative thinkers to explore careers in STEM, helping to build a more secure economic future for the children of Gallatin County. YOU can help us accomplish this. The STEAMlab is a high-tech learning space where youth and their families experience hands-on "making" activities in science, technology, engineering, art and math. STEAMlab Volunteer Mentors guide visitors through specific projects using materials and instructions supplied by the Children's Museum, both supporting and facilitating learning in a fun and welcoming environment. If you love kids, want to give back to your community, and are at least 21 years old, then you are who we're looking for!
