Free After School Club @ Do Space!

This is a brand new, virtual After School Club we've recently launched at Do Space for elementary and middle school kids. Each session explores STEAM activities with kids -- including coding tutorials, engineering and making, design, and digital art. This program is totally free and hosted on Zoom every weekday afternoon except Fridays. Do Space is located in Omaha, but it's our hope this program benefits kids across Nebraska. You can find more information here: https://dospace.org/afterschool/.
