Science. Play. Art. Creativity. Exploration.
That's what KidSPACE is all about. Let your imagination run wild in an interactive lab fueled by YOU!
Confront challenges and explore new opportunities while you use your hands and your minds to encourage invention. From free range exploration, to planned workshops and design challenges, KidSPACE offers a wide variety of learning opportunities that encourage STEAM education: science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
Explore five different "zones": a wet zone, where you can create masterpieces through painting, screen printing and ceramics; a textile zone for weaving and sewing; a light and dark zone for shadow play; an assembly zone where you can build and construct; and a high tech zone for experimenting with computers and 3D printing.
