Youth Reached

Total Reach

Our Mobile Makerspace is designed to bring hands-on STEAM learning into your community. We realize that many individuals are not able to visit the Innovation Hub possibly due to cost or distance. By creating our mobile unit, we can bring a makerspace into Arkansas classrooms and provide hands-on education utilizing a variety of state-of-the-art tools. Our curriculum is designed to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math subjects using a project-based interdisciplinary model that is fun. Sessions include real tools and real-world problem-solving that will challenge and inspire youth as well as teachers.

Simply put, we inspire youth and adults to learn more about 21st Century technologies, enabling them to become makers, artists, and entrepreneurs.
