Exploration Point! logo

Exploration Point! is a makerspace and digital media resource offering everyone from preschoolers to adults the opportunity to connect with others and bring their ideas to life using technology. Explore hands-on experiences with coding robots, 3D design, digital media creation, green screen photography, and STEM activities in a self-guided learning environment. Schedule an appointment with a librarian to learn more about laser engraving and cutting and 3D printing. Attend a program for more in-depth learning. What will you create?

Located in the Eldersburg Branch, Exploration Point! is open for scheduled programs and open access times. Drop in for self-guided use of any of the makerspace resources on a first-come, first-served basis during Independent Exploration. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to work with children 12 and under to explore their interests and projects.
