Exploration Point! is a STEAM-lab that offers everyone a space to connect with others, discover interests, and bring ideas to life using technology. Dedicated primarily for youth aged 6-17, the space features hands-on opportunities to explore coding, robotics, 3D design, and many other STEAM activities! Our mission at Exploration Point! is for school-aged children to develop science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) skills through hands-on experiences.

Located in the Eldersburg Branch, Exploration Point! offers open exploration times and scheduled programs. Drop in for self-guided activities during independent exploration or attend a program for more in-depth learning. What will you create?
