Cognizant’s 'Making the Future' program has been exponentially growing since its inception through after school programs and summer camps that inspire young people to use STEM learning and project based activities to unleash their creativity. As a result of our partnership with Cognizant we had the pleasure of hosting a Making the Future week long camp in the Maker Space this past August.
An awesome week of digital design and personal fabrication occurred during the Cognizant Making the Future camp. We used all kinds of digital programs such as Inkscape and Tinkercad to create our work and then used 3D Printers and a vinyl cutter to bring them to life. Facilitated by Jon Santiago of htink and NYSCI Education Services staff, the program also offered soldering and designing digital video games on Scratch.

The Maker Space is a learning environment where children, teens, adults and families can tinker, design, and create together.
In our workshops we use real tools to make real things and re-use everyday materials in exciting ways. From woodworking and plaster casting to electronics and 3D printing, we encourage experimentation, open-ended exploration, and believe that making mistakes is a great way to learn.
Our workshops are hands on and can get messy, so when you come to a class, don't wear your favorite shirt!
