Join us for our final Virtual Innovation Studio, focused on the Science of Communication. Learn how to communicate using signal flags and semaphore signals as well as how to make your own secret decoder ring to send messages that only YOU will be able to crack.
The first 50 families to sign up will receive a FREE Innovation Studio kit, with all of the necessary supplies to follow along with 3 hands-on science and engineering activities at home!
NOTE: THE KITS ARE NOW SOLD OUT. Didn't get one? See below for a list of everything you need to follow along on your own! Feel free to participate in one or two activities, or follow along with all three!
ONE KIT PER FAMILY. Please only register for one kit per family, NOT per child.
ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED. These activities involve the use of tools and materials that require adult supervision and proper safety precautions. Science and engineering are fun and interesting subjects that help us build our confidence through learning how to do hard things and being safe at the same time.
DIDN’T GET A KIT? We will provide a list of everything you need to follow along on your own! Feel free to participate in one or two activities, or follow along with all three!
