Now Open on Level 3
Come and see what all the buzz is about!

The Hive: A Makerspace Presented by The Isaacs Family is a collaborative work space for making, learning, exploring, and sharing. In The Hive, you’ll have access to real tools, materials and mentors that will help turn your creative ideas into reality. Whether you choose a guided activity or a design of your own, you’ll have support from Science Center staff and volunteers to help you work with a variety of equipment and learn new skills!

Many of the best designs come from collaboration.  The Hive is a space that cultivates community and emphasizes learning opportunities in every failure and success. Being a maker is all about imagination, creativity and experimentation. In The Hive, the possibilities are endless; go forth and create.

The Hive is designed specifically for makers ages 8 and up. Makers 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

We are all makers.

As makers we will…
…respect this space and fellow makers.
…follow The Hive Rules

 …ask questions when we need support.
…learn from every failure and success.

…share what we have learned with others.
…commit to radical acts of creativity.
