Every day until July 20, 2014

Want to learn how to solder? Now is your chance! Learn about LEDs, resistors, sensors and microcontrollers, while you solder them to the custom PCB we designed in Maker Space. Luminescent Night Lights emit a beautiful color changing glow, but they are light sensitive, so they only turn on when the lights turn off. After we have soldered our circuit, we will create paper and hot glue sculptures to go over our lights.

Recommended for ages 9 and older. $10 per adult/child pair, plus NYSCI admission. (Members: $8 per adult/child pair.) Register on the day of the event at the NYSCI admissions area. If you have any questions about Maker Space programming, email Reid at
