MakerPlace Workshops

Tinker, hack, design, and build – the Maker movement empowers the next generation of inventors and MakerPlace gives them the tools to explore their creative ideas. MakerPlace blends together science, technology, engineering, art, and math in a space centered around creativity and endless possibility. The basis of all scientific endeavors is the cycle of curiosity, tinkering, discovery, mistakes and problem-solving. These skills are vital to our 21st century workforce as we collaborate to solve real-world problems. Workshops are designed for ages 8 and older.
