Moonshot Labs | STEAM Superstars [1st - 3rd]
Moonshot Labs | STEAM Superstars
Do you love science? Did you know you can use science to cook, explore nature and even make Disney movies? Become a STEAM Superstar and discover the wacky world of amazing anatomy, tinkering engineers, and crazy inventions!

Transform into Cuisine Chemists to trick your taste buds, Bay Biologists to bust San Francisco’s famous myths, Minecraft Makers to create ‘TNT’ explosions and more! Join us at Moonshot Labs for a fun summer of STEAM shenanigans and maybe even some tasty treats.

Moonshot Labs introduces students to the fundamental sciences via the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through hands-on experiments, students develop a scientific mindset and build creative thinking and problem solving skills to tackle the world’s most pressing problems. We work with 30+ school partners, including PKS, Hamlin, ISB (Beijing) etc. Click here for fun sample experiment photos!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Steph at Moonshot Labs or (530) 407-3224. Thanks!
