Tech Track.

Permanent Exhibit

Tech Track.

Make your mark right as you enter MOXI on the Sheldon Family Handprint Globe. Get inspired by stories of local innovators and their work in our community on the Innovation Wall. Enter the Innovation Workshop, MOXI’s own makerspace where you can imagine, design and test your own creations using a wide variety of technologies and tools – from the low-tech popsicle sticks and glue to the high-tech 3-D printer and laser cutter. The Tech Track provides a glimpse into what’s new, what’s next, and the process of innovating and creating new technology.
