Portland’s new arts and sciences event & workshops venue. Located in Inner SE Portland,

You may be asking (of course you’re asking, you curious human, you!)…


How is Experiment unique?

Our events and programming - spanning a world of themes, topics,and experiences - provide fun for ALL age groups - from cherubic toddlers, slapping their hands into a finger-painting masterpiece, to grown ups, smearing swirly colors into abstract art and inevitably getting paint on our pint glasses!

Summer Camp – and Other Fun - at Experiment!

School’s out for summer, but the fun is just beginning at Experiment! We are excited to debut this summer as a brand new feature in Portland’s creative, curious, and educational community. Experiment is offering a bunch of educational experiences for those small humans with the most time on their hands: your child-age kids and ‘tweens.

 


Meet, or reintroduce yourself, to our favorite acronym:

STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math

Camps are week-long, half-day morning and afternoon sessions. Looking for full-day camps to fit your family’s schedule? Our mixed-and-matched camp schedule is crafted to offer two unique back-to-back AM/PM camps for the same age group. Pack a lunch for your child and Experiment staff will be there to supervise, lead games and activities, and facilitate drop-off and pick-up transitions.   

 

Our summer 2022 offerings include multiple STEAM camps for the science-curious and the art-intrigued!

And grown-ups, don’t feel left out!

One of our core beliefs at Experiment is that grown-ups like to have fun with science, art, and general nerdyness too! Some evening 21+ events will be ‘extensions’ of the summer camps activities, while others will be completely different. To give you an idea…we have already hosted classes in flower bouquet sculpting, weekly Drink & Draws, and an investigative wine+dark chocolate tasting… pretty neat, huh?)


At Experiment we know that being a scientist doesn’t just mean wearing a lab coat! Our vision is to inspire your kiddos through hands-on play and exploration about the everyday world around them.


Come experiment with us this summer!
