In May of 2022, the Whitaker Center unveiled the center’s new PNC Innovation Zone, a 7,000 square foot state-of-the-art space engages today’s youth in the topics of science, technology, engineering and math. This is accomplished through purposeful gaming and innovative programming. These new spaces have a special focus on experiential learning and deeper engagement in programming for students and families. This new “purposeful gaming studio” will be a space largely for scheduled programs and classes with school or other private groups.

Our Education Department is not only excited about the renovated physical spaces for our guests, but also about the hands-on inquiry-based learning and curriculum programming that will be offered to our patrons and school groups...

...We have a wonderful opportunity to better prepare youth in our region for future STEM-related jobs and that is exciting.
