iSPACE provides the Greater Cincinnati region with innovative and effective programs for students (grades preK-12), their educators and families. We provide field trips, in-school and after-school programs, summer camps, robotics competitions and other programs that stimulate interest in STEM and develop pathways to STEM careers. iSPACE brings together many STEM programs under one roof and offers authentic hands-on, minds-on experiences. What we do and how we do it is unique in this region. STEM concepts are reinforced through role-play so students can make the connection between what was learned and how it can be used in a career. iSPACE provides immersive experiences where students become scientists or engineers or astronauts for the time they are with us. Through the interest that is sparked during our programs, students can go on to choose career fields that are not only exciting/interesting but are highly sought out by local companies. In addition to teaching STEM concepts, our programs give students experience in many of the "soft skills" needed to be successful in today's workforce: teamwork, problem solving, logical thinking.
