Join us for a fun afternoon exploring aspects of STEAM with the whole family! We'll have learning and activity stations set up for everyone in the family, ages 1 to 101! Come one, come all! For everyone in the family! Check out the schedule below! No registration necessary.
10am- 2pm – STEAM Stations Open
Tinker Station with Tinkr
Games & Crafts with Schuler Books
MSU Bug House (Bug Cases with hands-on station)
LCC Music Station
11am – Storytime with author, Kate Cosgrove
At TinkrLab creativity and curiosity are encouraged in a safe environment, with hands on teaching. Kids learn best when they can experience and touch something rather than only watching. We invite you to come see what TinkrLab has to offer. We promise that the kids won’t be the only ones having fun.
Kate Cosgrove, Illustrator
Kate Cosgrove is an illustrator and artist from Michigan. She received a BFA with honors from Michigan State University. Kate’s illustrations have been published in all kinds of print and web media. She has exhibited in galleries and online, with collectors across the United States, Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, France and Switzerland. Cosgrove illustrated ‘Family Album,’ a children’s album by the hit rock band The Verve Pipe. In 2011 she was awarded an Arts Council Individual Artist Grant for her child-friendly art show “Animal ArtVenture,” hosted by the Lansing Art Gallery.
She says of her art, “I was born into a family where everyone makes something: art, music, food, clothing, noise, a mess… I found I like to make messes and art at a very early age. I expect to keep doing both until I draw my last breath. I’m a lucky girl.”
