CrashWorks is like a creative, exploration playground, bringing together all of the STEAM components in an educational environment by way of primarily recycled, everyday materials. Unlike other creative studios in the area, they focus on the process rather than the product, fostering imagination, inspiration, curiosity, discovery and problem solving, as their mission statement says. By using everyday materials, they hope to help their patrons see all of the potential in the world around them. Advanced technology is fascinating and has its place in the world, but they want to help kids see beyond it. They want them to see how all of the things they learn about are tied together-the mathematics in the music they listen to, the science behind their radio-even the mechanical science! Their ultimate goal is to provide a space for the next generation of makers, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs to flourish.
