Teachers from Preschools and Elementary schools are calling on The Exploratory to add to their curriculum with STEAM workshops. These workshops are designed to provide teachers with the vocabulary and skills they need to answer their students inquiries. Workshops are developed with educators who provide subjects that they encounter.
