The power of an IDEA.
Kansas City's center for Innovation, Discovery, Entrepreneurship and Arts is open. IDEA Space welcomes all metro K-12 students who are eager to build their skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. We created this center because we know every child has a big idea inside. Now they have the place and the people who can help bring them to life.
The Power of Community
Designed to serve thousands of students from diverse neighborhoods and varying socioeconomic backgrounds through year-round, hands-on educational experiences.
More than 91,400 Missouri and Kansas public school students live within eight miles of IDEA Space. We also welcome partnerships with schools and organizations throughout the region.
The Power of Place
A 32,000 sq. ft. center for STEAM education, IDEA Space broadens and diversifies pipelines into four key workforce development areas: skilled trades, engineering, advanced manufacturing and computer science.

Carson can freehand draw a map of any continent, label each country and pinpoint its capital. Carson is ten years old. When he walked through the doors of the Dan and Cassidy Towriss IDEA Space KC in July 2022, he told us that drawing maps is what he loves more than anything. What Carson didn’t know was the word cartography.
