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!
