 ECHO Leahy Center

From 10:00 am to 5:00 pm


Join Generator members at ECHO’s Innovation Playground Exhibit. This exhibit puts a spotlight on the innovation and creative explorations that happens in a makerspace. Adriana Lentrichia, Devin Wilder, Alex Swaisgood, Jean Cherouny, Rob Rock are just some of Generator’s superstars that are featured makers in this exhibit!
I’m tickled to announce that after many late nights and forays to Curtis Lumber the Innovation Playgound exhibit opened this past Saturday. After watching families interact with the space for many hours on opening day, I can confidently state this is an incrediblly engaging exhibit.  This is ECHO’s first in-house exhibit, and it quite literally would not have been possible without the talent and hard work of our local partners– The EMC at Champlain College, Generator and its maker members, the creators of Will & Whit, and our recycled lamp contest participants.

Innovation Playground celebrates lifelong play and its role in sparking technological, social, and artistic innovation in our community. Visitors of all ages will unleash their imaginations, building life-size worlds out of giant blue blocks, exploring virtual galaxies in a cardboard spaceship, and bringing inventions to life in our fully-equipped maker space.

In partnership with Champlain College Emergent Media Center and Generator. Generously sponsored by Hickok and Boardman Insurance Group.

ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain is a 501(c) non-profit organization. ECHO’s mission is to educate and delight people about the Ecology, Culture, History, and Opportunities for Stewardship of the Lake Champlain Basin.
