i2 Makerspace

Meet the future of makerspaces

The i2 Makerspace is Adventure Science Center’s permanent, high-tech makerspace where visitors can dream up an idea and watch it come to life! Located next to soundBox on the first floor of the science center, this space is a destination for hands-on STEM imagination and exploration.

What visitors are saying about the i2 Makerspace:

"My kids are 13 and 11 and our family has a passion for science. We have been to dozens of science museums all over the country. What makes Adventure Science Center special is the people who work there and some very unique and fun programming. My kids started taking classes at the Innovation Incubator last year. My boys have learned not only to make fun projects but the science behind them. I am so impressed with this work space and the people who work in it. We learn so much in there that we bring home and add to our homeschool!mThanks again for making my kids so happy! We are so very thankful for the programming at Adventure Science Center."

i2 Technology

Laser cutter
This tool allows the user to make precise cuts for a design from a given material using a CAD (computer-aided design) to guide it. Ask an i2 educator to see examples of what our laser cutter is capable of!

3D printer
This tool uses digital information from the computer to create a 3D object; this process is also known as additive manufacturing. Watch the 3D printer at work and look through our 3D-printed pieces.

Vinyl cutter
This tool controls the movement of a sharp blade to cut shapes and letters from sheets of thin, self-adhesive plastic. We use this tool to create unique vinyls for use around the building and for hands-on crafts and activities.
