STEAM MAKER Space Co-Op in Red Lodge?
What is STEAM? STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math.
We held a preliminary meeting late last week with talented, passionate people who contributed to this wonderful concept of a STEAM Co-op located in Red Lodge. We are on our way to increased collaboration among individuals, businesses, and organizations that are focused on providing STEAM related programs and opportunities for our youth and adult community members. We intend to create MAKER Spaces at Old Roosevelt, Co-Op style. We need all interested folks to gather with us on Wednesday April 11th at 8:30-10:00 a.m. at the Old Roosevelt School gymnasium to discuss expanded possibilities.
If you are interested in STEAM programming and MAKER spaces, this event is for you!
