Once you’re trained and outfitted, construct your Moon Rover out of Legos using basic engineering principles. Then it’s time to blast-off! As you step onto the moon’s surface, you’re startled by an unexpected squuiiish beneath your moon boot- alien slime! You must examine this slime in your isolation lab to determine where in the galaxy it came from.

This party will be the talk of the universe and remembered for lightyears to come!

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

At SteppingStone, we are committed to access and inclusion for all people. Our programs stand firmly in opposition to racism and we challenge our young artists, staff, and Board of Directors to foster inclusion and to seek equity for all, including Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQAI+, economically disadvantaged, all religions, veterans, active military, and those with accessibility needs. We work with families to meet students’ needs be it social, academic, developmental, or physical. SteppingStone respects students’ gender expression and provides access to gender-neutral facilities.

We Believe

Young people are artists, makers, and doers. They need to belong and to contribute to their world. When young people make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.

We Do

SteppingStone ignites belonging, generosity, mastery, self-advocacy, and inspiration by creating art with young people to share with the world.
