What will the space be used for?

A Space For Collaboration

FCFI will foster an environment of sharing and collaboration between the different sectors of our community. From business (large and small), education (K-gray), government (national, state, and local), and private (anyone that wants to grow their knowledge base).

A Space For Makers

Maker … a person that makes or produces something. 

By creating a culture of sharing ideas and making, we will all work together to research, design, and then create needful things or products to sell.

A Space For Business Incubation

Since startup companies lack many resources, experience and networks, incubators provide services which helps them get through initial hurdles in starting up a business. These hurdles include space, funding, legal, accounting, computer services ...

A Space For Community

We look forward to bringing all aspects of our community together. We will strive to provide a clean and safe environment for sharing and learning. We will regularly have theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights ...

A Space For Families

We understand that there are less and less environments where a family can gather to work on projects and ideas. 

We look forward to providing that space to our community.

A Space For Kids

FCFI will create and provide project-based learning curricula, after school programs, day camps, and drop-in projects for parents and children to work on together. Kids today need places to learn hands-on skills and crafts.

A Space for You!

Your first place is home and family. Your second place is work. FCFI is a third place to go to find new things, friends, ideas and edutainment. We will regularly have theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights, movie nights, group projects and anything else we can think up.

What is STEAM?


STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Though it seems like a compilation of five academic fields, it is really an educational approach to teaching and learning STEM subjects through the arts. Basically, it intentionally integrates academic studies with arts disciplines. LEARN MORE
