Maryland Science Center to Expand Makerspace

A $1 million gift from The Kahlert Foundation will enable the Maryland Science Center to relocate a popular exhibit, provide free field trip admission to more school groups, and enhance other programs.

“The Shed,” a maker space exhibit, will move to a larger space on the second floor of the Maryland Science Center, located at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The new space will expand the number of families and groups who will be able to participate in hands-on art, craft, science, engineering, and technology activities.

The area encourages visitors to solve problems, create prototypes, use new tools and materials, and explore how familiar items work.
