Our STEAM kids are such incredible artists (and scientists) that they use light beyond the visible spectrum.
They painted with neon colors to create eye-catching pieces that glow when placed beneath a black light.
And why? Because fluorescent paints don’t simply reflect light like normal colors do. They absorb ultraviolet light—that we can’t see, but other animals like bees can—and release that energy as visible light.
So far our STEAM kids have flown enormous paper airplanes, made stop-motion videos and learned about basic scientific tenets by experimenting with candy.
The program is free and open to all kids in first through fifth grade. However, registration is required. Registration begins two weeks before each respective session.
