We offer S.T.E.A.M. library workshops available for ages 5-12, and weave science, art and literature together to better illustrate complex principles. The workshops vary by season and quarter.

Our workshops are free to the public and are funded through the generous donations and sponsorship of such organizations as the “friends of the library”. San Jose Public Libraries have employed our company for a decade at the various branch libraries.

Sign up on our mailing list to be alerted to upcoming free library workshops.

Science Smart Kids programs are educational, informational and entertaining fun for the whole family.
