The following programs are held each month and are for children and their caregivers to attend together. 
If you have any questions please email

STEAM Storytime

  • STEAM Storytime is an interactive story time geared for toddlers and preschoolers, although all ages are welcome!

  • The story time will last about 20-30 minutes and will consist of songs, a story, and a follow-up project for children and their caregivers.

  • Each week we’ll read a story and participate in a project that allows us to explore various STEAM concepts.

  • STEAM Storytime will be held in the Community Rooms on the second floor of the discovery center.

  • Storytimes will take place the second Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. and are free with your museum entrance ticket. We’d love to have you join us for Storytime!

Feature Fridays

  • Feature Fridays is a monthly come and go program for families.

  • These events take place one Friday each month (school year only) during the evening, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

  • Feature Friday events will be held in the Spark!Lab on the first floor.

  • Each month we’ll feature a person or group who has made important contributions to a STEAM related field with an engaging activity.

  • We’ll provide learning materials and supplies.

  • We encourage children of all ages and their caregivers to join us for this fun Friday program. 

  • Feature Fridays are free with your museum entrance ticket. We hope to see you there!

Sensory Friendly Nights

  • Sensory Nights are designed for children and their families who may have special needs, differently abled individuals, and those who have sensory sensitivities.

  • We understand that the museum can be a bustling place. During Sensory Friendly Night, we provide adjusted sound levels and limit attendance to create a calmer environment.

  • Sensory bags will also be available at the front desk.

  • Families can explore the museum at their own pace.

  • Sensory Night is held the third Tuesday of each month from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

  • At this time, the cost to attend Sensory Night is $5 per person.

  • We hope to make this a free event in the future through sponsorships.

  • For more information or to sponsor a Sensory Night, please reach out to
