Makerspace

About

Imagine, collaborate and create something awesome.

Makerspace is an interactive, community-oriented space where anyone can create and learn skills using a variety of tools and materials. Explore science, technology, engineering, and your creative mind by interacting with our exhibits, getting hands-on with fellow makers in our Maker Classroom, or visiting our Maker Garage to meet local St. Louis makers. Work together with friends to imagine, build, adapt, modify and, most importantly, have fun.

Activities

What’s inside.

Air Ball

Play and experiment to learn how wind effects different objects. Then use the materials to create a game you can teach to someone else.

Float and Fly

Create an object using simple materials, then put it to the test and see if it flies. Once you’ve conquered the air, adapt your design and make it float.

Sail Race

Design a sail using Tinkertoys and fabric, then send it flying down the racetrack. Can you modify your sail to beat the best time of the day?

Ball Run

Assemble the magnetic pipes to get a ball from start to finish on one side of the ball run. Work as a team to try to get the ball around all four sides of the cube.

Rigamajig

Use everyday building materials like wood, screws, rope and brackets to create clever contraptions.

Workshops

January, February, March Workshops

Bloxels and Raspberry Pi’s
Come in and get the inside scoop on what went into creating GameExploration. Try your hand at developing a cool Bloxel video game and touch base with the Makers about our home made retro console. You’ll even be able to play some radical retro games from the 80’s and 90’s on a computer no bigger than a wallet. Can you set the high score?

Drawing on Metal
Engrave aluminum by hand! Draw or write whatever amazing ideas pop into your head with an electric engraving pen. Watch closely (through protective eye wear) as the diamond bit bites into the metal plates and poles like a pencil marks paper.

Rigamajig
Everyone’s favorite building toy will have a new home in the MakerSpace classroom. Please feel free to free build or follow one of our new building prompts or creative challenges. What will you create?
