iSPACE serves over 27,500 K-12 students and 5,500 adults from the Cincinnati area with Science and Technology programs held outside of the school classroom that are engaging and fun in everyway.
When schools are in session, iSPACE offers students and educators field trips that inspire a love of STEM learning . These unique programs are interactive, engaging, and designed to align with STEM curriculum standards across grade levels.
During the summer, iSPACE runs week long summer camps that teach students how to think and work like engineers and scientists. These hands-on programs have themes like Radical Rockets, TETRIX robots, Forensic Fun, BioBots and LEGO WeDo.
iSPACE also hosts and supports K-12 FIRST robotics programs FIRST Lego League, FIRST Lego League Jr and FIRST Tech Challenge. Students are given a yearly challenge and compete in tournaments to gain real-world application of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) concepts.
iSPACE has some much to offer as a means to engage our student in STEM and become the problem solvers of tomorrow.
