If you want to support our mission, you can check out our needs list, make a donation, or volunteer

Our goal is to create a hands-on activity center that can involve a wide range of ages. For the younger kids we will have many exhibits in which they can wander through and have things to play with. For the teenage groups- we will be offering workshops in electronics, digital media production, 3D printing, fashion design, and of course offering them the opportunity to volunteer. Which could be things such as hosting workshops for younger kids or being involved in creating or managing the exhibits for the exploratorium.

What we need before opening

Business License (completed)
Certificate of Occupancy (completed)
Registration Kiosk (completed)
Local Network and Server Completion (in progress)
Security System (in progress)
