As we adapt to new approaches to hands on education, please visit one of our two engagement stations located in the Garage and Classroom. Talk to staff as they demonstrate cutting edge technology or traditional tools. Learn the basics of laser engraving, 3d printing, sewing, carpentry or illustration. Come say “hi” and see what the team is making today.
3D Printing Mask Accessories
Watch time-lapses of 3 mask accessories 3d printed in our Makerspace Gallery. The text under each video describes the model and its use so you can download and print your own 3d mask accessories! The original modeler’s information is also included so you can download and print them as well.
Maker’s Physically Distanced Programs
Until we can be hands on educators again, we are going to do the next best thing. Through using a repurposed security camera, a monitor and a microphone, our staff will be assisting visitors through our new Physically Distanced Maker Programs. During our programs you can expect a safe, clean space with limited capacity and time to tinker with a hands-on activity.

Membership does more.
As a nonprofit, the Saint Louis Science Center relies on memberships, donations and ticket sales to support free galleries like Markerspace, our education programs, community outreach and daily operation.
If you’d like to support the Science Center’s mission, learn more about membership, make a one-time gift in support of the Science Center, or get tickets to see a show.
Makerspace is accessible to visitors with disabilities, as well as visitors with strollers, scooters, and walkers. Elevators and ramps serve all public areas.
