NYSCI Makerzines

Makers are everywhere. They are children, adults, students, teachers, toddlers and teenagers—anyone who creates and makes things that interest them.

A makerspace is a place where people make things. It can be anywhere—in a kitchen, warehouse, garage or even a bedroom.

Free to share, download the latest three-part makerspace inspiration zine produced by NYSCI, with generous support from The Walt Disney Company.
