Little Sparks - Your child aged 0-5 will receive a personal Little Sparks kit with all of their own supplies, plus make & takes that extend the fun and learning at home.
Junior Inventor Night - Children need encouragement and space to expand their understanding of the world and become problem solvers. The Cade’s Jr. Inventor Night is just the place for them to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math in an engaging way.
Our Jr. Inventors will do activities based on the Cade's innovative Pillars of Science which brings to life STEAM concepts behind inventions that have changed the world, and the inventors who first imagined what might be. Every week the activities change providing a new learning experience.
Maker Night - This is an open Maker Night for ALL Makers over the age of 10 including adults. “Makers” have the latitude to work on one day builds or long-term maker projects with the help and inspiration of the Cade Staff. This is an open experience meaning they can work on any project they wish.
