Daily Discoveries

Sponsored by: The William C. Schumacher Family Foundation
Discover Something New!

“Daily Discoveries” is a jam-packed nine-week summer program! Summer 2022’s activities will range from using 3D pens, building and testing paper bridges, or testing static flyers to engaging in surveying and coding, which will spark kids’ interest in STEAM concepts. From science to math, the CMA has the summer slide beat!

Activities are designed for children ages Pre-K to 10 and are included with $7 per person paid admission. Daily Discoveries is created by CMA educators and produced by trained Museum STEAM Facilitators to build in children foundational S.T.E.A.M skills and expose them to technical avenues they can pursue as careers or hobbies.
