Tucked away among warehouses in Jacksonville Beach, a new playground for local kids has emerged. There are no slides or swings at this playground. This is a new STEM maker space where kids can create, tinker and invent. Stocked with tools and circuits, LED lights and 3-D printers, Bolts & Bytes Maker Academy has everything needed to help your kids create something amazing.
