Our Mission:

Sparking a passion for STEAM, inspiring generations of young learners to innovate and create, utilizing art as a catalyst for exploration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Our Vision for the Future:

Kids Discovery Factory will be a vibrant STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) discovery center. Engaging exhibits and programs will inspire families and school groups throughout southeastern Indiana to explore, create and innovate.


Children who study STEAM develop a variety of skills essential for success: critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication, collaboration, and entrepreneurship. Hands on experiences at Kids Discovery Factory will spark confidence in children to explore new concepts, develop their passions, and drive their own futures.


We recognize the need to focus today on equipping our youngest generation with the skills they need to excel in the jobs of tomorrow. Kids Discovery Factory will allow young visitors the opportunity to create using real tools, discover the process of invention, experience each step of the manufacturing process in our kid-sized Factory, and more.


The future discovery center will be a truly unique destination. 10,000 square feet of exhibits and learning experiences, including 7 incredible galleries, an Innovation Hub, and two-story interactive STEAM climber will benefit children ages birth to 14 years old. We need your help to bring Kids Discovery Factory to life. Kids Discovery Factory is a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization.
