The Mobile Makerspace, the Innovation Hub on Wheels, brings educational programming to you!

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

Thanks to the Pulaski County government, we can bring our Mobile Makerspace to schools within Pulaski County at no cost to the school!
