Read on for more information about these and other events happening in December at BADM!

Snap Your Family Photo with Santa

December Drop-In Programs
In BADM’s daily drop-in STEM and Art Programs, children can explore new topics, design unique creations, and test out original ideas. In December, children can celebrate the winter season by exploring the characteristics of arctic animals, or designing catapults to compete in a “snowball” launch challenge. These programs, along with other December offerings, will spark their curiosity for STEM thinking and hands-on creativity.
