We love discovering Maker Party events that focus on innovative learning in the community and the NYC Makery pop-up makerspace really caught our eye. Part shop and part workshop, this pop-up makerspace welcomes individuals to stop in to play and make with technology. They also run workshops on a variety of topics including 3D printing, flight and aerial photography, making your own audio speakers, toy hacking, game design, building an Arduino controlled gardening system and more.
What is the NYC Makery?
The NYC Makery is a pop-up makerspace – part shop & part workshop. A movable and temporary venue where youth and adults are encouraged to be curious, to tinker, to experiment, and to make with technology. We transform art galleries, storefronts, and street spaces into pop-up community makerspaces where communities can gather to play with the creative power of digital design and fabrication, physical computing, and computer programming.
