The MakerPlace

Presented by Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana and the Kentucky Science Center

We’ve got the MakerPlace! Based on the popular Maker Movement and the variety of makerspaces popping up in communities across the country, the MakerPlace brings science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life through designing, building, tinkering and inventing using ordinary, everyday items, gizmos, and gadgets.

Recently, Emily Sullivan from Nation’s Capitol shared her personal experience in STEM during a bipartisan Capitol Hill briefing focused on broadening girls’ experience in the STEM/Maker movement. Emily used GSKentuckiana’s MakerPlace as a prime example of how we have successfully created a lab dedicated to STEM in which more than 200 students have already participated. What an honor to have Emily choose our MakerPlace as her example to our legislators!
