Youth Programming

The Space fosters curiosity, experimentation, imagination, hands-on problem solving, and collaboration through the exploration of digital fabrication, gaming, electronics, robotics, digital literacy, computer programming, graphic design, AV production, design thinking, and more. We offer a variety of day camps, after school programs, and one-off workshops.


We are planning out youth programming opportunities. We need your feedback to determine where to focus our energy. Please use the button below to submit an interest form. Email thespaceonmain@gmail.com with any questions!


Guest what?! BUS 6 from BES/OHS has an after school drop-off location at the corner of Main St + Bank St. This is perfect for attending programming at local community organizations such as The Space On Main, The Hub: Teen Center, and Bradford Public Library. (Note: Make sure your student has a note giving them permission to ride Bus 6 and be dropped off in front of Star Cat Books.)


When: Saturday, October 7th, 6:00-9:00pm

Who: Students ages 7-12. 20 spots available.

What: By student request, The Space On Main is experimenting with a Switch Social. Students bring their Nintendo Switch to The Space. We will have one Switch console hooked up to the big screen for those who don’t own a Switch (will support 8 players). We will order in pizza (we can handle dietary restrictions as well).

Student Benefits: Fosters social interaction & dialogue; promotes healthy competition; encourages teamwork & collaboration; exposes them to diverse gaming genres; develops focus in dynamic environments; offers emotional support & safety in numbers; and helps hone social skills & respect for individual choices. Most importantly, they have fun!

Parent Benefits: An evening out (or in)!

Price: $30 helps to cover the cost of equipment, food, and staff support.


The Space On Main is an official host of Girls Who Code. Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does by providing a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models where students learn to see themselves as computer scientists. We work with the Sphero Robotics curriculum, Swift Playgrounds, edClub’s Typing Club, and a variety of web design and development programs. This program is offered at no cost thanks to support from the Couch Foundation.
