Nestled on what is quickly becoming the most kid-friendly block in North Berkeley, a new STEAM lab for young children will open its doors for both session-based and drop-in classes starting January 30, 2018.

Hands-On Berkeley is a bright little studio, created by educator Tracy Hollander, who has a long history of facilitating tinkering and discovery for children. Colorful chairs and art supplies are thoughtfully organized on the shelves, including on some mobile materials stations that children can pull towards themselves as needed.

Morning and afternoon sessions for 3 to 6-year olds will be the regular daily routine. Parents can buy class packs of 5 or 10 drop-in dates, to be used as desired. Single drop-ins are $14, while a 10-pack is $120. Caregivers will stay and explore with their children during these sessions.

Afterschool classes for grade school children will roll out in the coming months, starting with Painting, Drawing, and Art History (ages 5-11), which starts January 30 and Woodburning (ages 9-11) which starts February 1.

Activity types span science, technology, engineering, art, and math, as the descriptor STEAM lab suggests.
