Science. Play. Art. Creativity. Exploration.
That's what KidSPACE is all about. Let your imagination run wild in an interactive lab fueled by YOU!
Confront challenges and explore new opportunities while you use your hands and your minds to encourage invention. From free range exploration, to planned workshops and design challenges, KidSPACE offers a wide variety of learning opportunities that encourage STEAM education: science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
Explore five different "zones": a wet zone, where you can create masterpieces through painting, screen printing and ceramics; a textile zone for weaving and sewing; a light and dark zone for shadow play; an assembly zone where you can build and construct; and a high tech zone for experimenting with computers and 3D printing.
Perler Bead program at Happen's Toy Lab
Saturday, January 27 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Happen, Inc.
Happen's Toy Lab is a one-of-a-kind, wacky laboratory where guests create their own unique toy creations using pieces and parts of old and broken toys donated by members of the community. Guests can use our patterns to create a pixilated character from their favorite video game, or use the beads to create their own vibrant patterns and works of art. This program is free for all attendees.
