Do you like to tinker and build? Join us on STEAM Saturdays at Children’s Museum of Illinois to learn about careers in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) sector and create a project centered around that career. Our guest speakers are local engineers, scientists, and artists that will educate and inspire young makers in 3rd-6th grade.

Eric will be presenting information about Comic Book design, Comic Book art and Comic Book creativity!

Cost of program is $20 per child or $15 per members of the Museum. Registration required.
