Design Thinking Workshop: Toys and Games

 

Loading Events

Do you love playing with toys and games? What have you learned by playing?

Join us in Maker Space for our new Design Thinking Workshop series. In these workshops, you can learn the steps of the design process and apply them to designing and prototyping your own toy or game using everyday materials.

This workshop is part of our Design Squad Days workshop series, held every weekend throughout the fall, presented in collaboration with WGBH Boston.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Receive an introduction to design thinking.
  • Help create a prototype.
  • Work on your designs during Open Make time.

Free with NYSCI admission. To ensure your spot, RSVP in advance of your visit.

This workshop is recommended for ages 8 and older. Visitors should plan to spend between 45 – 90 minutes working on their projects.

The workshop also includes use of a new app that will help participants create their designs and continue them at home. If possible, please bring a device for your child to use, such as a smartphone or tablet.
