Chicagoland's Premier Makerspace for Kids and Teens

It's a place where they can learn to use real tools to build real things. Our goal is to inspire and guide the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs, and problem-solvers by showing kids from elementary school through high school that they can be producers rather than consumers of designed objects, technology, and media.

Creating Opportunities

Whether it's a kid or teen just starting their maker education, an experienced teacher trying to integrate new skills into their classroom, or an administrator trying to expand access to makerspace facilities across their district, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to bring the benefits of a well-rounded maker education to almost anyone. We offer camps and classes at our own makerspaces and in schools, publish a maker curriculum, support educators with professional development courses, and design and build makerspaces for schools and school districts.

“We formed a partnership to have our faculty and students work with Bit Space in the design and buildout of our spaces. We worked closely with their team to make the design and building process a learning experience for everyone. We explored ideas and options while working to meet deadlines. Through it all, Bit Space shared their expertise from other settings to inform our choices.”
