The Plan

Construction has begun on Keystone Kidspace—a one-of-a-kind hands-on learning and makerspace for kids to create the things of their imagination.

Keystone Kidspace is a place to try things on, turn them upside down and push them further.

Hey Kids (and Parents), look, life is messy. There isn’t really one right answer (even though the back of the book might tell you otherwise). There is a ton going on in the world right now, and it’s all changing fast. But that doesn’t need to be a bad thing! You can learn anything you want; all you need is the internet and a little bit of curiosity. We’re like that: always looking for new stuff.

We want you to be a part of Keystone Kidspace, because we’ve designed it to be a place where that kind of thing is always happening. We put out awesome tools and materials that interest us; you’ll have the chance to participate and join in. Also, you’ll be able to try out that science experiment or art project (or whatever) that your parents don’t want you to try at home! We have all the stuff we’ll need—from power tools to paint brushes to baking pans to motherboards to fabric dye to matches (and more). All you have to do is tell us what you’re interested in.

You’ll always be welcome at Keystone Kidspace. We want this space to be a place where everyone can find something for them. Believe it or not, York has a long history of making. Now it’s your turn. Come join us. Give something new a spin!

We’re always shaking things up so come check out the fun spaces to get a move on… What? Bikes inside?

We need scientists, artists, writers, engineers, woodworkers, metalsmiths, and more to give our kids the chance to try something that they’ve maybe never tried before.

We want the weird and the wonderful, the strange and the silly, the creative and the crazy. If you have an idea that you’ve been playing with or a passion you’d like to share, you’ve found the right place. Keystone Kidspace is looking for unique experiences and classes. We want to support instructors who bring new ideas to our kids. The world of the future won’t look like the world of today. The best way to get us all there together is to inspire. Our kids need to find the things that light them up and make them feel more alive. Let’s provide them opportunities to discover new things—about old topics, about themselves and about the world around them.
