What: Spring into STEM Community Access Night
Who: Families with children ages 1-12, with a special focus on children ages 2-8
When: Wednesday, March 29, 5-8 p.m.
Where: Imagine Children’s Museum, 1502 Wall St. (entrance on Hoyt Ave.), Everett, WA 98201
Cost: “Pay As You Can” admission

The Spring into STEM Community Access Night is a special collaboration between Imagine Children’s Museum, Snohomish STEM and Northshore School District.

Playful, age-appropriate STEM learning experiences can help children develop new capacities for deeper learning, critical thinking and creative problem solving. They can also help unlock new pathways to STEM careers and give them confidence when they encounter STEM subjects in school.

This special Community Access Night gives all families a chance to explore the children’s museum’s two floors of interactive exhibits, as well as hands-on STEM learning experiences presented by Snohomish County education partners. Spring into STEM is a special collaboration between Imagine Children’s Museum, Snohomish STEM and Northshore School District.

Though the focus is on young children ages 2-8, it is open to all children ages 1-12 who are accompanied by an adult age 18 or older. For some, it may be the first time they are introduced to play that intentionally introduces children to science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. Spring into STEM helps children early in their education journey to take the first steps in developing STEM literacy and spark an interest in STEM.

To ensure all children can enjoy playful learning experiences that promote STEM skills, the Museum does not have a fixed admission price on this Community Access Night. Instead, all families are invited on a “Pay As You Can” admission. No one will be turned away.

This is made possible in part with support from Presenting Sponsor Northshore School District, with funds directly from the Puget Sound Taxpayers Accountability Act (PSTAA). This support aims to foster collaboration and innovation while leveraging partnerships with community-based early learning organizations to increase the likelihood of improving early learning outcomes.

Imagine Children’s Museum is hosting the event in its newly expanded facility, with two floors of state-of-the-art, interactive exhibits to inspire a lifelong love of learning through play. The new exhibits showcase the Pacific Northwest, the Puget Sound and Port of Everett.

“This collaboration between many education partners gives all children and families in Snohomish County the chance to experience the wonder and magic of STEM-linked playful learning with those they love,” said Imagine Children’s Museum Executive Director Nancy Johnson, adding that events like these are possible thanks to donors to the Museum’s recent expansion.

“With more space, we can offer a physically and emotionally safe space to families from all walks of life in fast-growing Snohomish County,” said Johnson. “Through partnerships, Imagine is a hub of inclusion, equity and quality of life in our community, where children and adults can play together while developing 21st-century learning skills.”

Snohomish STEM supports the event by bringing together local community partners to showcase STEM education through table activities, getting kids excited about STEM learning. Partner organizations that will offer hands-on activities in the Museum’s third floor include Everett Community College, Rock Solid Science, Snohomish PUD, Snohomish County Public Works, Sno-Isle Libraries, WSU-4H, YMCA, and Zeno Math.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Snohomish County organizations have united to share Spring into STEM with children. In 2022, more than 1,000 children engaged in various activities for the series.

Imagine is located at 1502 Wall Street in downtown Everett, with the main entrance on Hoyt Avenue. Street parking and pre-pay parking lots are available around the Museum.
