Art + Design + Fabrication: making things that work!
Are your children ready?
Creativity & Innovation are two of the most important skills to succeed in the fourth industrial revolution.
Our MakeSpace program stimulates the development of these skills through the design and making of objects that work.
In this process knowledge related to mechanics, aerodynamics, electricity and other simple technologies are acquired.
Visit us to see what it's all about! Kids & their families WELCOME!
