Play Your Part
The Amazeatorium is a unique annual event that mobilizes the Saint John community to experience the educational power of playing together. Play is crucial for the social, physical, intellectual, emotional and civic development of children. The Amazeatorium brings together passionate professionals — scientists, engineers, artists, doctors, musicians, farmers, radio producers, athletes, filmmakers, park rangers, dancers, and architects— who are willing to share their expertise with children via playful activities. Together, we transform the floor of Harbour Station into an amazing interactive learning landscape. When the doors open to the public on April 7th, children will enter into an extraordinary Learning Playground hosted by close to 100 local businesses and community organizations.
Cutting Edge Immersive Theater for Families
As a feature attraction for 2018, we’re thrilled to present the highly acclaimed Bright Star Children’s Theater interactive production of “Upcycled Cinderella,” a high-energy, immersive drama experience that families will never forget! As part of the performance, children will create real props to help Cinderella get ready for the ball!
LEGO: Back By Popular Demand!
Kids love LEGO, and as educators, we know that LEGO helps kids bring their ideas to life. This year, we are thrilled to once again partner with Robin Sather, Canada’s only LEGO Certified Professional and with JK Brickworks, the award-winning LEGO designers from Ontario. Our LEGO experts will be showcasing new and exciting models to inspire our visitors, will host the popular Construction Zone where kids can design and build giant inventions, and will oversee the huge LEGO Play Pool, where kids can let their creativity and engineering skills run wild! To top it all off, a LEGO-themed obstacle course will make for a truly unique day of learning and fun.
