The city of Fishers will Saturday cut the ribbon on the new Maker Playground community makerspace at the Hub & Spoke mixed-use development. The event will also celebrate the new home of the Fishers Parks and Recreation Department.
The Maker Playground is a 15,000-square-foot space designed to allow members of all ages to “tinker on projects, work through business ideas, obtain STEAM-based programming and learn more about skilled trades.” It includes classrooms, a metal shop, woodshop, 3D printing space, and think tank, among other amenities.
The event kicks off at 1:30 pm with an open house scheduled for 2-7 pm at Hub & Spoke. The city says the event will feature Maker lab classrooms and take-home projects, 3D printing in the Think Tank, engineering and building projects with Snapology, along with other activities, games, music and food trucks.
Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness, Congresswoman Victoria Spartz (R-5) and others are expected to make remarks.
