WATER IN(ter)VENTIONS – Invention Workshop

May 14 2022 / 10:00am - 12:00pm

Calling All Inventors! Have you ever wondered how things get invented? This workshop will use creativity and STEAM to take you through the invention process. You will get to use your imagination to solve real-world problems related to protecting our waterways with an invention of your very own. All while learning about how art meets science to solve problems in the real world.

Youth in grades 4 – 7 are invited to join this workshop at CVAG led by Sophia Vaillant.
Space is limited to 15 participants. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED – email:

There is no cost and materials are supplied. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Zenius Labs is a youth-led initiative started by Sophia Vaillant that aims to create collaborative STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) experiences for people of all ages. They recognize the diversity of the STEAM field and feel that the opportunities available should support that diversity. Join them in changing the focus of traditionally competitive activities to foster creativity and imagination by applying STEM concepts through art.

This event is part of the RETURN TO WATER FESTIVAL – a series of arts-based events and presentations that bring the community together to explore issues related to perceptions of water, use of water, the human relationship to water, the climate’s effect on water, and the concept of water as a “living entity”. From May 12 – 14, 2022, daily events will instigate interdisciplinary and cross-cultural considerations of water and its significance through visual art, photography, video, sound, interactive media, texts, performance, music, dance, and song.
