Make a Fun STEAM-based Project Every Week
We offer fun hands-on after school programs for a variety of ages. Each session provides a fun project that may explore fundamental concepts of:
- Simple machines
- Basic electronics
- Computer programming
- Digital fabrication
- Multimedia production
Students learn how to use a variety of hand and small power tools with close adult supervision. All materials costs are included in the session fee, and students get to take their projects home when finished. We rigorously test all projects so we know they will be fun and reasonably attainable, but we also leave room for failure and experimentation along the way.
All teachers and volunteers are experienced in teaching and working with kids, and are subject to a thorough background check.

This is a satellite program of our popular Kid’s Club after-school at Weccacoe Playground and Queen Village Community Center for Meredith and Nebinger students only. This program is on hiatus due to construction at the playground and changes in leadership at The Hacktory.
