JOPLIN, Mo. – The Creative Learning Alliance today hosted an open lab and paper airplane throwing event for young ones.

Kids aged 5-11 got creative this morning, while kids aged 12+ had an afternoon session in the lab.

“Kids learn by doing, first of all. So it’s important that we let them and give them a place to do. And then secondly, it’s important because we want kids to be excited by science, said Neely Myers, Project Coordinator. “We don’t want it to be a drag with just a textbook like at school. We want to make it very real and very applicable to their life.”

The CLA says its vision is to engage people of all ages with hands-on activities driven by curiosity with a focus on STEM.
