Maker Space Opens In Missouri, Works To Bring STEAM Education To Youth

Missouri has a growing reputation as a state committed to innovation. From the Missouri Innovation Center in Columbia, to the Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri talent is leading the way in innovation in areas such as advanced manufacturing, agtech and health services.

Now a new “maker space” is pushing that innovative spirit to new heights. MADE, which stands for Makers, Artists, Designers and Entrepreneurs, recently opened its 33,000 sq. ft. facility in St. Louis, Missouri. MADE costs $50 a month to join and has small hourly fees to use equipment, which includes 3D laser printers, laser cutters, embroidery machines and more.

In addition to equipment and programs for adult makers and entrepreneurs, the new space will serve as a satellite location of the Magic House children’s museum in nearby Kirkwood, Missouri. The satellite space will focus on elementary and middle school students and will open this summer. The Magic House space will be a place for families to visit and spend an afternoon, and it will also offer classes and camps with a focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) education.
