MAKE A NEW START

Imagine a place where individuals of all ages and their families can come for the ultimate hands-on career exploration experience, exposing them to career pathways they may have never considered before.
The MIC is a place of discovery where purpose and strengths connect you to promising careers.  Our team is so excited to welcome the community into our space and to continue partnering in meaningful ways to deliver unforgettable experiences in the Make It Center!  We hope all guests walk away with a sense of hope and some inspiration about what the future holds for them and their families.

Experiences at the MIC:

Guests visiting the MIC can expect to have a range of experiences, including:
  • Simulation Zone: Virtual reality simulations that allow users to “try out” different careers by immersing themselves in various job sites.
  • The Forge: An area where guests can engage their curiosity and imagination, using tools like 3D printing, laser cutters, and vacuum formers to create career-related projects.
  • Square 1: Engaging displays and exhibits that help the community explore the fastest growing jobs and industries in Central Texas.
  • Interacting with Pepper: Guests have the opportunity to interact and take pictures with Pepper, the humanoid robot mascot of the MIC.
