I have been working with HTINK and NYC Makery since this summer and I am really excited about what we are doing! Over the summer there was a 2 week Makery pop-up with all-ages classes on 3D printing, paper circuits, lego hacking, and so much more. Another pop-up will spring up December 9th on the Upper West Side. We are also looking for a permanent home for the Makery so we can offer classes all the time. In the meanwhile HTINK has partnered with schools across New York to teach game design with Scratch and 3D design with Tinkercad.
I am so happy to be working on interactive, project-based learning. There are so many possibilities thanks to the microcomputing and DIY boom. I have a huge box full of sensors, Arduinos, and displays just waiting for inspiration. Updates on that as it develops!
