Here is a small sampling of this weekends creations from our One Block Challenge workshop: rare birds, happy rabbits, and jet packs.  To see the rest and find your photo check our One Block Challenge page.We have one more weekend of One Block Challenge workshop so be sure to stop by the Maker Space this Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 or 3:30 to take the class. We have no weekend workshops in September as prep for Maker Faire so this is your last chance for some weekend making till Maker Faire on Sept 20th and 21st!

The One Block Challenge returns this weekend!  Stop by the Maker Space at 1:30 or 3:30 on Saturday or Sunday and see what you can create with just one small block of wood!  Both days will be the same workshop, creating anything you can imagine with just a small hand saw, a hot glue gun, and a three inch block of wood.  If you want to get some inspiration, or find your project from a few weeks ago, check out all the fun animated gifs we made from the first weekend on our One Block Challenge page.This has been such a fun workshop so far, and we cant wait to see what new creations this weekend brings!

Excuse me, but is there a WoodBot on your head?  I guess you must have come to this weekends WoodBot making workshop!  Congrats on all the awesome bots!





This past Saturday and Sunday was our first weekend of the One Block Challenge and it was so much fun!  If I told you kids and families made everything from flowers and robots to a pig with a bow tie and crown out of just one single small block of wood, you wouldnt believe me.  Which is why you need to see the awesome results for yourself on our One Block Challenge page.Interested in taking the class?  Then stop by this Sunday at 1:30 or 3:30!  Check out our Weekend Programs section for more information.

Make Academy-Week 4

This weeks Make Academy was all about casting! The campers used silicon molds they made last week in order to caste figures out of crayon, hot glue, and even metal. Additionally, they began to brainstorm ideas for their final projects they will be making in two weeks.

Make Academy-Week 3

Week 3 of Make Academy was filled with some more 2D to 3D design exercises, as well as, preparing for next weeks casting workshop by having the campers create a mold of their 3D prints. The 2D to 3D exercises included stacking craft foam to create geometric shapes and constructing their 3D figures from cut out cardboard pieces.

Luminescent Night Light Code
If you made a Luminescent Night Light and are interested in the programming that makes it run, we have put the Arduino code online and you can download it here.  There are a ton of comments and explanations in there for anyone just getting started with programming.
Other Links and Tutorials
You can reprogram the ATtiny85 microcontroller to change the behavior and functionality of your Night Light.  All you need is an Arduino, a breadboard, a 10uf capacitor, and some jumper cables.  Check out this tutorial by High-Low Tech for more information.If you missed the workshop but want to build your own, check out this ATtiny85 Mini RGB Mood Light Instructable for a tutorial + code.

Hi my name is Caroline and I am the newest Makerspace resident. I have been working at NYSCI for about 7 years and my passion for interacting with visitors,designing and prototyping and helping develop workshops has brought me to MakerSpace. I am excited to learn how to laser cut and hopefully designing a dancing robot. I am currently a Biology and Chemistry major and future dietician. When I am not at NYSCI I do ballroom dancing competitively and kickboxing in my free time.

Week 2 of Make Academy: Transform It

During the second week of camp we made more progress towards creating our 3D prints, by using the online program TinkerCAD. This costless program creates a simpler 3D CADing process by using pre-made building blocks, similar to the blocks the campers used to make their figures. To get acquainted with using TinkerCAD the campers were given a task of creating their times out of the rudimentary shapes.

After, the campers used TinkerCAD to reconstruct and scale down the figures they made last week.

Later that afternoon, the campers continued the construction of their storage boxes. The addition to the lesson this week was to teach them how to use a jigsaw in order to but a bottom for their boxes. After they finished constructing the boxes, they had the option to make it unique by adding handles and compartments.

Maker Space at NYSCI

Maker Space is a learning environment where children, teens, adults and families can tinker, design, and create together. We reuse everyday materials in exciting ways and encourage experimentation, open-ended exploration, and believe that making mistakes is a great way to learn.
