Innovation Playground Exhibit celebrates lifelong play and its role in sparking technological, social, and artistic innovation in our community. Visitors of all ages will unleash their imaginations, building life-size worlds out of giant blue blocks, exploring virtual galaxies in a cardboard spaceship, and bringing inventions to life in our fully-equipped maker space. In partnership with Champlain College Emergent Media Center, Artistic Evolucìon, and Generator. Generously sponsored by Hickok and Boardman Insurance Group.
