A downtown Mission nonprofit geared towards teens unveiled its new makerspace on Tuesday — and also celebrated its third anniversary.

Tyler’s House KC, an afterschool center focused on supporting high school students’ mental health, cut the ribbon on Tuesday for its new makerspace.

The space comes equipped with two 3D printers and a laser cutter, and Tyler’s House KC leaders say it exemplifies the community’s support for the group’s mission to bolster local teens’ mental health.
