Sometimes the content on our companion site is too good not to share here. Plus, we know that The Maker Mom is a hit with Chicagoans, too. STEM Kids Chicago partnered with several Chicago and suburban venues to create this directory of opportunities for loads of birthday party fun that stimulates young minds!
Do you want your kids to make something cool with code? Create with something more tangible, like fabric? Do you want an adventure in the wild (okay, forest preserve, because megalopolis)?
These local venues have got it going on for birthdays and beyond. Play with engineering! Kids can build a robot, a bridge, or something so cool that no one has ever seen it before. Play with technology and code! Kids can make 3D prints or code computer games or apps. Play with science! Mix up gooey slime or bubbling potions.
We’re happy to announce that all of these partners are offering generous discounts to STEM Kids Chicago readers! Check out STEM Kids Chicago discounts page for details.
