Youth STEAM Workshops

At Connected Lane County we know that parents and guardians may have scheduling and logistical challenges when navigating no-school days. We have you covered! We are offering interactive workshops for in-service days where youth will explore all types of fun Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) activities at our downtown Eugene space, SparkLab.

This is a fee-based service, but all of the funds that come in are directed back into our program. Income generated from these workshops will be reinvested into our programming to help us serve those who need us most.
