Mouse Spring Maker Day is April 21st, 12-4pm!
Make cool tech while saving the planet! This spring we are celebrating Earth Day with a special green Maker Day. Mouse Maker Day is free and open to all NYC high school and middle school youth who want a space to tinker, make, build, and learn cool stuff!
We are bringing together Makers of all ages under one roof to spend the day building, crafting and designing with technology. Come create with coders, crafters, 3D designers, whiteboard artists, gamers, makers and more from all over NYC. This is the perfect place to try coding, building circuits, making games or designing in 3D for the first time! You’ll get to meet experts, learn new skills and take home something you made!
What kinds of things can I make at Maker Day?
- Sewable Tech: explore basic engineering concepts by combing circuitry and art
- Coding projects: work on computer games, websites, web hacks, animation, and more, using programs like Scratch and Thimble
- Game Design: Create an arcade style game with Unity, the leading global game industry software
- Circuitry and Electronics projects: build something that buzzes or lights up, or hack an electronic toy to do something new and weird
- Crafts: Use pencils, paper, scissors, pipe cleaners, etc to make something physical and visually cool
- Virtual Reality: build and decorate your own VR headset and create a customized VR world
- Graphic Design: play around and learn some new tricks in PhotoShop or Adobe Illustrator
- School projects: bring something you're already working on for school (or for fun!)
- Experiment! Maker Day is the perfect place to explore new technologies, find new interests or to advance STEM skills you already have!
