Soldering is one of the most important skills you’ll need for working with electronics. Come join us for an introductory through-hole soldering workshop. Soldering enables you to create sturdy connections between electrical components.
Get started with electronics! Zero experience required. Learn about motors, light bulbs, resistors, buttons, batteries, breadboards, LEDs, power supplies and more. This is a great way to get your projects electrified, whatever they are. Included in the cost of the class is a kit of parts to keep for further experimentation.
A class for 3D newcomers who want to learn the basics of creating 3D models and printing them. Your instructor will take you through key concepts of 3D printing, demo the technology on our printers, and lead the class through the design process of creating a model and preparing it to print. We’ll talk about creating functional objects, creative objects, available materials, print reliability, and compare various printer models and features.
Let’s make seed bombs using native plants appropriate to NYC’s urban landscape!
There’s a lot of pavement in our city. To support a healthy ecosystem, we need to make the most of anywhere that things can grow. Sometimes those places are out of reach, and seed bombs are are an efficient way to get helpful plants growing in ‘unused’ spaces like vacant lots, street dividers, and subway cuts.
We’ll consider New York’s unused growing areas, plants that can grow in them, and what the plants can do, such as supporting pollinators and remediating the soil.
Then we’ll each select seeds appropriate for our particular nefarious plans and make our own seedbombs!
It is Mother’s Day, so this workshop has multiple ways it coincide with the holiday: Celebrate Mother Earth! Honor your own Mom-ness! Bring your mom along! Memorialize a mom no longer with us! Avoid a mom from whom you’re estranged! Give seed bombs to a mom as a present!
