Mini Makers Virtual Workshop:
Light and Mirrors

M@H: Virtual Workshop Series is a multi-week virtual learning program, designed to engage learners in hands-on inquiry at home.

Participants each receive a kit of uniquely chosen materials and supplies that support weekly inquiry-based activities focused on a STEM content theme. Montshire Educators provide live, on-screen engagement, where children are encouraged to share in their learning process and make discoveries with fellow learners, as well as weekly activities and prompts for off-screen exploration and extension of learning.

Join us in our Mini-Makers program all about the science of light and shadows, mirrors and reflections.

This three-part virtual program is for children ages 4-5 and an adult to explore and experiment together. Using a variety of special materials that we provide, each mini-maker will use their imagination to create everything from kaleidoscopes to shadow puppets. Materials will be provided and the program will be conducted via Zoom.
