Hub & Spoke Institute

The Hub & Spoke Institute (HSI) provides hands-on experiential learning and an educational journey in which the community becomes the classroom.


Our unique partnership with local employers and The Maker Playground is creating better opportunities and helping kids and adults discover their passions and learn the skills needed to live a successful and purpose-driven life. HSI is committed to developing industry career awareness and developing talent through a variety of training programs.

Hub & Spoke Institute is the first-of-its-kind collaboration to provide students with the tools and skills they need to excel not only in the classroom but also in high-paying, in-demand jobs.

The initiative will allow students to receive hands-on STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education.

Why Does Workforce Development Matter?


College is a great option for many, but not all. Dropout rates exceed 30%. How many people do you know who realize, after they’ve spent so much time and money on a degree, that they’re on the wrong pathway? Spending $20,000, $30,000 or more a year is just too much when you aren’t sure where your real interests lie. Children should not have to decide their future before they have discovered their passions.

Along with giving our children more freedom to explore potential passions, the trades have proven themselves as even more relevant, vital, and essential than ever. But the reality is that we do not have the people we need to fill critical roles. In the face of disappearing shop classes, a generations-old “Bachelor’s or Bust” mindset, and a de-emphasis and devaluation of the trades, it’s no wonder that 72% of Indiana contractors are struggling to find skilled employees. The labor shortage is nothing new, but HSI is taking a new approach to workforce development.

HSI puts the trades on the table as a viable option for a challenging, rewarding, and well-paying career. With partners like Hamilton Southeastern Schools (HSE), it also literally puts tools in the hands of people who may never have thought that this path was open, available, or right for them. From the smallest makers – who often have the biggest ideas! – to adults who want to explore new possibilities, this is a learning environment without boundaries.

We cannot solve the labor shortage by staying siloed; as with any ecosystem, we need to interact and work together in order to survive and thrive.


The solution to labor shortages is not a solution. Rather, it is a multitude of solutions from leaders in education (from primary to post-secondary), private industry, and the community. The HSI Entremaker program is a groundbreaking workforce development ecosystem that brings these stakeholders together to effect positive, sustainable change in our industry.

The key to a healthy ecosystem is interaction and cooperation between partners – as well as the desire to ensure the whole survives and thrives. This is what HSI strives to do; it is the mission and model on which it is built. Solving our major challenges and engaging people in the trades requires (1) access to space, tools, and teachers and (2) fuel to feed the fire and passion within folks. This is where the magic happens. This is where we make.

The Nickel Plate Trail

While Hub & Spoke’s design fosters innovation, inspiration, and functionality, outside the complex’s walls, nature will add some of its wonder and amazement along The Nickel Plate Trail.


Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness calls transforming the trail a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the city to create a world-class public amenity. “It is about building a vibrant city and a place that will attract a talented workforce and encourage young families and businesses alike to choose Fishers as home,” he says.

The 4.5-mile trail will provide city residents and visitors an attraction like no other in Central Indiana. The trail’s master plan includes opportunities to discover the city, incorporate art and history, provide fitness and wellness opportunities, create community gathering spaces where neighbors can convene and catch up, highlight technology and inspired innovation, improve pedestrian circulation networks to downtown, and attract entrepreneurs and future development.

The plan extends from 96th to 146th streets. In its 21-year vision, the master plan includes residential, multifamily housing, industrial, and commercial use.

The trail will likely see many different types of mobility for various purposes. Many people may walk to nearby destinations, while others may choose to use the trail as a running or biking circuit. Some may utilize the trail as a path to work via scooter.

HOW THE NICKEL PLATE TRAIL GOT ITS NAME:

In the late 1800s, the Nickel Plate Railroad was built in Central Indiana, connecting communities, people, and goods in a whole new way. In the 1870s, railroad owners added a stop in Fishers where people could board the train or switch trains. The City of Fishers now has the opportunity to embrace its past and look to the future as it creates a whole new kind of experience with the Nickel Plate Trail project.

While some of the areas along the trail are activated, almost 80 percent of the trail is a simple pathway that maintains existing natural buffer plantings.

Functioning in conjunction with schools around Fishers, an education center on the trail will provide students learning opportunities about nature, wildlife, storm-water management, and native plant species. More than 200 students of varying ages from area schools worked on projects and shared their ideas for the trail. Almost every idea found its way into the plan
in some form.
