S.T.E.A.M. in the Sculpture Garden

April 3 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Children in the region are invited to an electrifying evening at the upcoming S.T.E.A.M. night in the Mathews-Sanders Sculpture Garden on the front grounds of the Bologna Performing Arts Center. This exciting event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 3rd, from 4:30 to 6:30 PM and is free for all kids and families.

S.T.E.A.M. Night centers around an elementary-level blend of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math activities, offering attendees an opportunity to engage in hands-on exploration and experimentation. Each partner brings their own special activity to the evening, showcasing the community’s spirit and commitment to special educational experiences for children throughout the Delta.

Attendees can look forward to multiple activities designed to ignite curiosity and spark imagination. From testing their architectural and balance skills with Giant Jenga to witnessing explosive reactions during the Mentos and Coke experiment, there’s something for everyone. Participants can also embark on a prehistoric adventure by digging for fossils or immersing themselves in the world of music at the music makers station.

One highlight of the event is the Bell Academy Sprouts garden demo, where attendees can delve into the wonders of nature and learn more about gardening. Additionally, thanks to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library with the Delta Health Alliance’s Kayleigh Jackson, the evening will feature a Story Walk for Ada Twist, Scientist, a book in the popular children’s series by Andrea Beaty and students can follow the story while winding their way through the garden. A staged version of TheatreWorksUSA’s Ada Twist, Scientist will hit the BPAC stage the following week for a special matinee performance on Tuesday, April 9. Tickets are still available for purchase for the matinee performances at 9:30 and 11:30.

Partnerships with local organizations include Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library with the Delta Health Alliance, The Delta Health Alliance resource and Referral Center, Delta Arts Alliance, GRAMMY Museum Mississippi, FlyZone Bell Academy Sprouts, and Friends of the Cleveland School District.
