Studio i and Makerspace at ImaginOn

Express yourself in Studio i and the Makerspace at ImaginOn through animated and live action videos, music or other tools including graphic design with Adobe Creative Cloud, drawing, and even robotics. These spaces have the tools needed to create content whether it’s for a school project or an engaging hobby. This space is located on the second floor in the Loft at ImaginOn and is for ages 10-18 and parents/guardians with children in this age range working on a project together to bring stories to life!

In the Fall of 2019, Independence Regional, Beatties Ford Road Regional and Sugar Creek will have the satellite equipment available.
