Join us for an exciting day of learning!

Connect with educators, tinker and play in our "playground "areas, and own your learning during our unconference! Here are some items you can play with in our "playground."

3D Printing and Scanning- Come explore the various options of 3D printers available to build and borrow at the Education Studio as well as test out the ability to scan yourself or a friend with our in house 3D scanner!

Cardboard Exoskeletons- Ever considered what it would be like to have your own amazing suit of armor? Join us for a unique opportunity to design, build and decorate your own exoskeleton that is tailored to your body!

DIY Best Fort Ever - Interested in gearing up your primitive survival skills? Using our dowel rods and custom connectors, design and build your ultimate outdoor survival shelter!

Crafting and Coding - Craft and create on our in-house Minecraft server, play the educational video game that your kids obsess over and see what the fuss is all about. While you are there, code some Minecraft Mods on our Raspberry Pi computers while you explore the Kano Operating System!
