COGNITION creates an interactive space for children, families, and the community to acquire knowledge through adventurous play, investigative learning, and creative growth.
Cognition's upstairs exhibit area equips our next generation with enthusiasm for STEAM concepts (Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Math) and help facilitate a qualified workforce for the community. At COGNITION, young learners will have early opportunities to explore real-life STEAM situations and hands-on learning as they build the skills Davie County needs for tomorrow.
The downstairs portion of the building is devoted to the Makerspace. This area is available to visitors from ages 10 to 100, where they can tinker and problem-solve to their heart’s content. There will be many areas of exploration offered to visitors. Classes, workshops, summer camps, and more will be offered to engage both youth and adult learners. Programming will be built around the materials and capabilities of the Makerspace. There will be ample opportunity for questioning, experimenting, and problem solving.
Mobile Carts that have the flexibility to move around within the space will be dedicated to subject areas such as Manufacturing, Robotics, Crafts, Sewing, Textiles, and Art. Each cart will be equipped with items pertaining to that cart’s subject area!
