The power of an IDEA.
We are open! Kansas City's center for innovation, discovery, entrepreneurship and arts welcomed hundreds of students during three weeks of exclusive hands-on learning in July. Now, it's time to welcome all students throughout the metro who are eager to build their skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Every child has a big idea inside. We have the place and the people who can help them bring ideas 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 Partnership
It’s a big IDEA. It’s innovative. And ambitious. We invite you to be part of Kansas City’s future through a partnership that will make an astonishing impact right now and into the future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption to schooling in recent times. Student learning losses and mental wellness issues threaten this generation and will greatly impact the educational and social maturation of millions of children.
This unparalleled disruption to education is far from over. To prevent this learning crisis from becoming a generational catastrophe, we must act urgently.
