Young creators and tinkerers, we’re “making space” for you! Makerspace Junior lays the foundation of a maker mindset and future Makerspace courses with an introduction to design and creation.

What is a Makerspace? It’s a collaborative setting where students learn to explore their imaginations and design their ideas. Picture a science lab, woodshop, computer lab, and art studio all blended together for a hands-on educational experience.

The year will end with a final project where you are in charge! You will be in charge of a budget, research, design, and creation.

In-Person Meets in Lehi, Utah, at Thanksgiving Point. Students have access to multiple great instructors and an environment where collaboration is encouraged.
