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.

The Maker Program Blueprint offers a template for after school or summer programs and addresses the types of spaces that can be used, ideas about schedules and format, and the materials and personnel needed to create and sustain a program.
