Programs for Schools

School Residencies

Our core program is a 2- to 12-session STEAM-based residency that enrichens curriculum. Schools select a grade level and theme, from All Around My Community to Bridges: From Here to There (click here to see some more possibilities). Our experienced design facilitators take it from there. In an optional end-of-residency celebration, students present their work to their families and the school community.
