With a mission to educate children in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), art, and all things creative, Lab Space Robotics uses hands-on building and exploration of how things work to keep kids learning outside of the classroom. Lab Space Robotics also offers creative workshops in video game design, programming, robotics, stop-motion animation, and digital comic design for students ages 5 and up. Having recently partnered with the Girl Scouts of America, Lab Space is currently offering all classes online with project supplies available for home delivery through their website. 

“Our teachers love the things they teach and really want to share them with your children. We hope you’ll join us to learn something new. We’re located in the Capital Mall, but we’re currently online because of COVID-19.”
