Clubs with Makers exist in schools, community centers, and in neighborhoods. Some are open to new members, and others are only for the youth who are already part of the institution that hosts the club. To add your group to the directory, please fill out our Affiliated Clubs Application.
Creates and supports informal learning environments for students to learn about design and tinkering. In addition to working with traditional hand tools, students also learn about how the physical world interacts with the virtual world through electronics and physical computing. We encourage self-directed learning, where students have extensive input about the projects they pursue. Whether it is making their own video games, building robots, or creating interactive clothing, students create their own individualized projects while gaining a common set of skills that they can share with their peers. Through tinkering and making, participants develop their problem solving and computational thinking abilities. If you live in the NYC area and are interested setting up a Young Maker after-school program in your community, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
