Introducing the Mouse Creative Computing Lab

Mouse is opening pre-registration for the first two events at our Creative Computing Lab. Lab events offer interactive and engaging STEM, design and computing activities which blend digital/analog tools and experiences. These events are open to NYC public school students who want to experiment and build with technology in new ways.

The first event on Wednesday, October 30, Costume Tech, sponsored by NYCEDC, will give your students the chance to amplify their Halloween gear with lights, sound and more. Please note that this event is for Elementary students grades 3-5 only.

Middle and high school students, join us on November 20 for the Robot Election, a one-of-a-kind team design and engineering challenge. Compete in real time to design, build, promote and elect a robot leader at the Creative Computing Lab.
