LEARN TO SOLDER AND BUILD A COLOR CHANGING NIGHT LIGHT!
Tomorrow is the first day of our first month long learn to solder class: Luminescent Night Lights.  Stop by the Maker Space at 1:30 or 3:30 to learn how to make your own rainbow colored, light-responsive night light!  The workshop is for ages 10+ and costs $8 for members or $10+admission for non-members.  Click here to see our full schedule of workshops this month.We are also super excited about our first Make It At Home Challenge.  Once you take the workshop and have your blinky glowy night light we challenge you to make an enclosure for it at home with materials you have around the house.  We have had lots of fun experimenting with the effects of color, light, and shadow every day objects can create and we cant wait to see what you come up with.  See you tomorrow or later this month!-Reid

Burrrrrrr its cold outside!  This Saturday and Sunday at the Maker Space, beat the chill with the coziest workshop in town, where we learn how to hand sew and make our very own stuffed animals or small pillows.  We will learn how to use needle and thread to sew on buttons and make stitches too create a funny faced Stuffie or a cool little pillow. 

We have two workshops each day, the first from 1:30-3:00 and the second from 3:30-5:00.  Register on the day of the event at the NYSCI admissions area.

Hope to see you there.  Stay warm!

NYSCI at the Faire

Dust off your soldering tools and gather up your Arduino-based dreams, because World Maker Faire is happening this weekend at NYSCI. With more than 650 makers, plus demonstrations, workshops and performances, there will be plenty of things to try out, contribute to, or simply marvel at.

And we wouldn’t miss this chance to show off some uniquely NYSCI-created projects like giant-bugs made from sheet metal and lights, work stations where you can make walk-along gliders or underwater robots, and a workshop where your littlest fairegoers can make their own superhero gadgets. And if you’ve forgotten how to solder or how to program with Arduino, don’t worry, there’s workshops for that too!
