Maker Space Workshops

Maker Space is a learning environment where children, teens, adults and families can tinker, design and create together.
From workshops in woodworking and plaster casting to electronics and 3D printing, we encourage experimentation, open-ended exploration, and believe that making mistakes is a great way to learn.

Young Children & Families

Make music or play with trains in Preschool Place, design and create together in Little Makers, or sign up for a family workshop. Kids and grown-ups can learn together in these fun programs and spaces.
