A new space at the Kentucky Science Center inspires young makers
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a place to tinker and create, without worrying about making a mess.
The MakerPlace at Kentucky Science Center with Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana inspires children ages 8 and up to think outside of the box.
The area is a blend of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) skills, centered around creativity and endless possibilities.
Based on the popular maker movement, The MakerPlace will guide users or allow them to learn at their own pace to make new creations out of everyday items or learn specific skills.
Projects will range from learning soldering and building a blinky bot to learning new crafting techniques like felting or plastic bag weaving.
The MakerPlace is now open to the public Tuesdays-Sundays.
The space is included with an exhibit admission.
