Today’s Hours

A DIY workshop where STEM becomes STEAM.

The Shed, presented by Chesapeake Employers Insurance, hosts drop-in activities that blend art, craft, science, engineering, and technology. Visitors might take on a problem-solving challenge, prototype an inventive object, or investigate the inner workings of a familiar item. Learn how things work, how to use different tools, and how to apply your DIY skills to create something new in The Shed!

Exhibit highlights:

  • Hands-on encounters with materials and tools 
  • Informal practice in design thinking and maker skills 
  • Celebration of creativity, innovation, and collaboration 

The Shed rotates through different activity offerings throughout the year. Check out the event calendar to see what we will be doing on the day of your visit.

The Shed visits are arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
