Let's inspire the next generation of local talent.  Share what you're passionate about, and explore it with students to discover the STEM disciplines within.  The geometry of fine art.  The physics of boxing.  The engineering of race cars.  The biology in crochet.  The algorithms in video games.  Immerse them in the material where they already exist - we can turn any place into a makerspace.  

We work with people like teachers, librarians, home school coops, and other non-profits to develop unique workshops for their students to enjoy.  Our approach is a little different than most.  We are here to inspire young minds through programs that are truly interesting  or important to them, not to force or trick them into learning.   Research has shown that recess and socialization are crucial to the development of the whole child.   The result is students learning organically, making friends along the way, and gaining exposure to complex concepts in a familiar, non-academic, unintimidating environment.   Finding wonder in the world around us is not a competition.  

Local teachers are invited to share our small library of technical resources.   We select only the latest gizmos and gadgets that have been designed to engage and stimulate young brains, with the teachers (not engineers) in mind.   Connect with other teachers, parents, and educators to see what their students are up to.  Why pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for one resource, when you could have access to the library and a community experience for a mere fraction?

Check out our Facebook Event Calendar to find workshops near you. We're trying something different.  It's constantly evolving.  It's a lot of fun. Come play, and let's make something awesome!

We are *beyond* excited to announce that we will be adding Practical Self Defense, and First Aid/CPR to our program offerings! Topics covered: awareness, bullying, dog attacks, food allergies, and everything in between. Don't worry - there will be plenty of physics, anatomy, and math 😊 Stay tuned!! ... See MoreSee Less

The future is on the cusp of change for students in Michigan.

Between 2017 and 2020, Michigan science standards for K-12 students are changing to meet next-gen standards.
Analysts are projecting a shortage of 100,000 trained workers in the STEM field by 2020.
