This weekend: LED ORBz and Futuristic Fashion
This Saturday is the return of LED ORBz! Learn about simple electronic circuits as you build these colorful creations that will be sure to light up your winter nights! No soldering required. Workshops are for ages 5+, and cost $5 per parent child pair ($3 for NYSCI Members). Register on the day of event at the NYSCI admissions area. This is a walk up workshop so stop by the Makerspace with a ticket anytime between 1:30-3:00 and 3:30-5:00 to participate.
On Sunday we have an extra special workshop with Guest Maker Deren Guler, about high tech textiles and sewable electronics. All participants will be making a futuristic scarf that changes color according to heat or sunlight and incorporates sewable circuitry! We have two workshops on Sunday, one from 1:30-3:00 and another from 3:30-5:00. Workshops are for ages 10+, and cost $10 per parent child pair ($8 for NYSCI Members). Register on the day of event at the NYSCI admissions area.
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!
