Innovation Incubator

Meet the future of makerspaces

Innovation Incubator (I2) is Adventure Science Center’s permanent, high-tech makerspace where visitors can dream up an idea and watch it come to life! We recently moved to a brand new, bigger and better space on the first floor, right next to soundBox - come visit us!

What visitors are saying about I2:

"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.
  • 3D printer
    This tool uses digital information from the computer to create a 3D object; this process is also known as additive manufacturing.
  • Vinyl cutter
    This tool controls the movement of a sharp blade to cut shapes and letters from sheets of thin, self-adhesive plastic.


Current Hours: Fridays from 10am - 2pm, Saturdays from 10am - 4pm, and Sundays from 10am - 2pm. 

Drop in and explore the incredible Itechnologies with our makerspace educators, included with general admission. Guests of all ages can enjoy the chance to get a taste of coding, 3D printing, circuitry, design and more!


Step into our Innovation Incubator (I2) to explore high-tech maker tools while dreaming up incredible ideas and watching them come to life! We're constantly working to provide new I2 Maker Labs that not only get you excited about learning STEM concepts, but also give you free reign to exercise your creative mind.
