The Child Creativity Lab's mission is to foster the next generation of critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and leaders through hands-on creativity-enhancing exploration. The organization's vision is to inspire children to challenge their comfort levels and thereby raising their potential for personal development and contributions to society.
The Child Creativity Lab opened its Depot for Creative Reuse in September of 2015. This facility features a community makerspace that offers an eclectic variety of STEM-based workshops for children, teens, and educators that are hands-on, purposeful, and yet fun, engaging, and similar in excitement level and entertainment value of jump houses and other “pure-play” amusement centers.
The organization also offers STEM-based educational outreach programs, via the CCL Museum-on-Wheels, to schools, libraries, community events, afterschool programs, churches, and more.
