Maker Lab is open during WSPS regular hours, and is free for WSPS members. Drop-in visitors can use the Maker Lab by paying the regular drop-in fee of $10/Providence residents & $12/all others. For drop-in visitors wishing to use only the Maker Lab, the fee is $5/child. For more information on West Side Play Space's membership and fees, go here.

These workshops are led by adult Rhode Island College students working toward degrees in Elementary Education who chose WSPS as the focus of their work through the course, "Building Family, School and Community Partnerships."
