At BitSpace, we start with YES! Your child wants to design the "perfect" house? Absolutely -- let’s design at multiple scales and explore a whole community while we're at it. How about a garden that grows itself? Go ahead...but what if we try to get our plants to talk to us as well? Wherever their imagination takes them we have the high and low tech tools to help them build those skills and become tomorrow’s inventors and producers -- not just consumers -- of designed objects, technology, and media. If it sounds fun, it’s because it is. The fact that it will help prepare them for a world where companies seek creativity over all other soft skills? Well, we can always keep that between us…!About Us
We don’t just know the Maker world, we are leading it. After years of offering programs at two youth-focused makerspaces in Chicago and at over 100 schools, we know what works. We guide our youth learners through a combination of customized Design Thinking and Maker Mindset projects to achieve things they never thought would be possible, all while letting them lead the way.
