While The Dome, Springfield's Center of Innovation, is owned and operated by the Springfield City School District, we aim to serve all curious learners, educators, and community partners in the Greater Springfield region.   We do this in many ways: we open our informal learning spaces to all, we host focused programs and events for groups with particular interests, and we rent or lease space to other educational organizations.  

We thrive on collaboration, and we're proud to be

  • Hang out in YOUmedia, our after-school space just for high school students.

  • Tinker and dabble in our middle school makerspace, make: springfield.

  • Bring your class, team or group of any age on a field trip to learn about science, technology, engineering and math.

  • Create art in our welding or woodworking shops.

  • Host or attend a workshop in our professional learning suite. 

  • Reserve a conference room for 10 or 100 people.

  • Play a role - on stage or behind the scenes - in our 689 seat John Legend Theater.

Curiousity, Collaboration, and Community are our motivating values.  We're open to conversation about how we can support your goals.
