After School Inventor’s Club

Weekly After School programming in STEM & Coding

Kids age 6-14 are welcome every day at MakerState’s After School Inventor’s Club at our Upper West Side Makerspace. MakerState programs are taught by experienced & background checked instructors with new and continuing projects every day in robotics, coding, engineering, rocket science, game design, minecraft and 3D design and more. Our projects include:

  • Coding video games in Scratch and Kodu
  • Designing and code epic worlds in Minecraft & Roblox
  • Building and flying rockets and airplanes
  • Engineering our own circuits and contraptions
  • Designing and 3D printing any object you can imagine
  • Learning to create something new every day

MakerState’s After School Inventor’s Club runs in three cycles – Fall, Winter & Spring – every academic year. Following the NYC DOE calendar, there are approximately 15 sessions in each cycle. If you sign up for the After School Inventor’s Club during the cycle, you will only pay for the sessions your child will be attending! It is also possible to purchase single day passes. We host Holiday Camps on each school day off as well as Saturday Inventor’s workshops.

Why MakerState After School Inventor’s Club IS SO MUCH FUN!

  • Learning through play, art and games
  • Building with cardboard, clay, playfoam, circuits and code
  • Taking on new challenges and earning new sticker badges
  • Playtesting our designs and learning that problem-solving is fun
  • Learning to create something new every day!
