Children to mix art with science at The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum this February

On four Saturdays this February, young mariners ages 4– 9 are invited to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., to participate in CBMM’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Team. Class sizes are limited, with advanced registration needed.

Each week, STEAM Team participants will join instructor Martha Hamlyn in a hands-on exploration incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math with the arts.

Two sessions will be held each week, one from 10am–noon for children ages 4 to 6, and another from 1–3pm for children ages 7 to 9.

Program themes include “Making (Sounds) Waves” on Feb. 1, “Build a Boat & Make it Float” on Feb. 8, “Chesapeake Rivers” on Feb. 15, and “Rock-ing it with Geology” on Feb. 22.

The cost per class is $15, with a 20% discount for CBMM members. Register online for all four sessions for an additional discount. Need-based scholarships for individual classes are available. For more information, and to register, visit
