Brooklyn StoryMakers MAKER PARTY!

I'll be with Laura Fleming & Inanimate Alice at the Brooklyn Storymakers Maker Party organized by the Brooklyn Public Library and Hive NYC Learning Network. Come make something with us!

Other organizations offering activities include Brooklyn Public Library, Hive NYC, Coder Dojo NYC, Iridescent Learning, Institute of Play, New York Hall of Science, Inanimate Alice, Eyebeam and others.

Program: Storymakers Maker Party
Date/Time: August 23rd, 1-4pm
Description: Brooklyn Public Library and Hive NYC Learning Network are teaming up to host an event for youth ages 10-18, featuring hands-on activities that celebrate the fact that stories are as much fun to read as they are to make! Create an online comic strip, design and playtest video games, make a stop-motion animated short, or retell/remix your favorite story using digital media and the web. The goal is to make something awesome and share it with others! This event is part of the Mozilla Maker Party campaign – it’s one of hundreds of events around the world where people realize their creative potential and become active makers of the world around them.
