Maker Days at NYSCI

Electric Doodles by Collab

Looks like the New York Hall of Science is gearing up for Maker Faire by running a few of their own maker events. July 23 – 24, August 6 – 7, & August 20 – 21 they will be having what they call “Maker Days“:

Tinker, design and create at Maker Days. Play with Zoob, design with Capsela, and more. Plus, demonstrations by NYSCI Explainers and special guest Makers each weekend.

Starting July 23 – 24, you can design and build with Htink, craft with RePlayGround, and make electric doodles with Collab.

Maker Days will take place in the Viscusi Gallery on Saturday and Sunday, with ongoing activities 12 to 5 pm and Science Demonstrations at 12 and 4 pm.

You had me at “capsela.”

A few weeks ago I attended a MakerFaire community meeting, and the folks from NYSCI were there. Some of the museum folks talked about how inspired they were by the Maker movement, and how they were taking steps to incorporate making and makers into their exhibits and programs. This looks like a great start, and a great summer activity for kids too!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
