The i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa is inviting young people to plan to spend their spring break at the museum's Mini Maker and Wonder Camps, which are two hands-on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) programs for children ages 4 to 9.
"Both programs were created to support learning, encourage collaboration and inspire creative problem solving through art and science activities," i.d.e.a. Museum Education Curator Dena Milliron said in a press release.
The museum's Mini Maker Camp, designed for ages 4 and 5, will allow campers to tinker, explore, build, play games and create art which goes along with the museum's Sonoran Safari spring exhibit. Mini Maker Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Wonder Camp, which has half-day and full-day sessions, will show campers how stuff is made with focus on STEAM.
Wonder Camp half-day is for ages 6 through 9 and will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Full-day Wonder Camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
