We strive to develop programming that will engage your child in unique, hands-on learning experiences opening their minds to the world of making, building, programming, creating, digital fabrication and manufacturing, entrepreneurship possibilities, leadership and the ever-evolving world of creative technologies
Our goal is to help kids move from being consumers to creators. We promote making mistakes, taking things apart and putting them back together again in a way that makes sense for them. We value a kids’ desire to reinvent the wheel. Our making experiences for kids will help them to develop as confident problem-solvers and creative thinkers. We are focused on teaching 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and perseverance through exciting learning experiences. Kids feel good about themselves when they are making: this is the time they can be the director of their time and energy and CEO of thought. Set them free and allow them to create!
Kids, ages 10+ can become members to create in our workshop using equipment for engineering, making, printing, inventing, more. Student membership is $60 per month and offers access to all workshop equipment.

MindCraft Kidz After School 3:30-6pm
Monday-Friday for ages 5-14
"An emerging do-it-yourself culture of “makers” is boldly voiding warranties to tweak, hack, and customize the products they buy. And what they can’t purchase, they build from scratch. Meanwhile, flexible manufacturing technologies on the horizon will change fabrication from massive and centralized to lightweight and ad hoc. These trends sit atop a platform of grassroots economics—new market structures developing online that embody a shift from stores and sales to communities and connections." (Institute for the Future")
