New STEAM studio opens downtown

Local News

A new studio built to enhance children’s creativity and learning is now open downtown.

Folks gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Crashworks STEAM Studio and Makerspace, a workplace for kiddos and their parents.

Shauna LaRocque, one of the founders of the studio, expressed her gratitude in tears as she and her family present the product of their hard work to the community.

Effective Friday, Wichita Falls parents can take their kiddos to the Crashworks STEAM Studio and Makerspace where they can, not only have fun while creating but learn. 

Alissa Perez is a mother of 3 who says this will give her kids the freedom for their imagination to grow, her daughter Annabella, making the most of it.

“As a homeschool mom, we love to get our children exposed to different types of education, the Science, Technology, Art and we just think this is a great place to bring our kids,” Perez said. “She was overwhelmed at first because there are so many amazing things for her to do but she gravitates towards Art.”

Crashworks is an idea that has been in the making for two years and owners Shauna and Ty LaRocque are overwhelmed with the successful outcome of their hard work.

“I feel incredibly blessed and thankful and glad that we are finally here,” Shauna LaRocque said.

The couple tells us what they are most excited for.

“The opportunity to do stuff with your children [that’s not sitting in front a screen]. Is gonna be fantastic.” Ty LaRocque said. 

Kids will be able to build, paint, learn about power tools and so much more but the LaRocque’s are assuring parents that education does not have to cost a lot with an admission fee of $6.
“Hands-on education and problem-solving and critical thinking can be done with just anything,” Shauna LaRocque said.

Alissa and other parents are most excited for their kids to have hands-on learning with the Crash crew in this creative studio designed to promote children’s development.

The LaRocques are asking for recyclables that the kids can use to build and take apart.
