It’s easy! Visit the Innovation Hub, or let us bring the field trip to you—virtually or with our Mobile MakerSpace!

Our STEAM-based field trips are educational, fun and thought-provoking. Each experience includes a hands-on project designed to engage your students’ hands and minds whether they are visiting the Hub or interacting virtually.

Each field trip exposes students to a variety of creative possibilities—from technology to art to entrepreneurial ventures. Students don’t just learn—they engage and are encouraged to investigate and explore!

Visit the Hub in Person!

Bring your class to the Innovation Hub and give your students the benefit of experiencing Arkansas’ first makerspace in person. Students will receive a tour of the Hub’s studio spaces in addition to their selected field trip. Hands-on activities are dynamic at the Hub. Students will see our state-of-the-art spaces and equipment in action!

Virtual and Kit-Based!

Our virtual experiences are every bit as fun and engaging as the in-person ones. Students receive digital or physical kits with the tools and materials they need to complete their projects, and we make it easy for teachers, too! We provide the instructors and kits, and you provide the students. It’s that simple.  

Virtual experiences can be held via Google Meet or Zoom. 


Learn to use Tinker CAD — a free, online, 3D design program that will allow you to make digital objects for 3D printing. This is a great way to get started with learning how to design!
