In 2015, Children’s Museum of Illinois partnered with the Center for Entrepreneurship at Millikin University to staff and equip an interactive exhibit on the second floor, the Make Space. Featuring tools, a complete littleBits library, and a fellow from Millikin, the Museum has been able to bring STEAM based activities to students aged 13 and younger in Central Illinois.
While the Make Space is only open when staffed to ensure a quality learning experience, families, and students have shared how much fun it is to learn about circuitry, physics, and more in an interactive environment. Regular visits, such as our Tinkering Toddlers and Make Space Challenges are only $1 per project, and pre-registered events range start at $6 per student.
