The downstairs of the COGNITION building will be devoted to the Makerspace. This area will be available to visitors from ages 10 to 100, where they can tinker and problem-solve to their heart’s content. There will be many areas of exploration offered to visitors. Classes, workshops, summer camps, and more will be offered to engage both youth and adult learners. Programming will be built around the materials and capabilities of the Makerspace. There will be ample opportunity for questioning, experimenting, and problem solving.

Mobile Carts that have the flexibility to move around within the space will be dedicated to subject areas such as Manufacturing, Robotics, Crafts, Sewing, Textiles, and Art. Each cart will be equipped with items pertaining to that cart’s subject area!
