What is The Factory

The Factory is a hands-on maker space where youth will become part of an environment where they can have ideas, meet friends and make cool things. This interactive maker space features tools and technologies such as Laser Cutters, 3-D Printers, Computers and CNC-Robots. Our maker space technicians and guides will help transform your ideas into reality through fun hands-on project experiences.

The Factory is a new division of KidSenses, which is designed for youth ages 11 and up. We have launched a 1.4 million-dollar capital campaign to secure a permanent home for The Factory. While fundraising is underway, we invite you to preview The Factory at the Woodrow Jones Community Hall, located just one block south of KidSenses Children’s Museum.
