The Wire

The 2016 DIY Project


Every year we hold the D.I.Y. Competition to give you the chance to share your skills with the entire Mouse network. "D.I.Y." stands for "Do It Yourself" and we ask you to make something that will teach others how to do something you know.

Congratulations NYC on Our First Ever Maker Saturday!

Mouse hosted our first ever Maker Saturday on April 16th, combining all the fun of our monthly Maker Nights with additional activities from some of our friends at Hive NYC.

At Maker Saturday, makers of all ages came together to tinker, code, and make at 7 different stations with Mouse staff and volunteers from 4 other organizations. Each station focused on a different type of making.

Mouse Maker Saturday Make Stations:

Each station offered learners the ability to try a different project for the first time, or to expand their skills by learning from experts that hosted each station. In addition, everyone could add their own drawing to our collaborative whiteboard wall!

The day was divided into two sessions with a lunch in between each session. At the end of the day, students shared highlights about what they learned and made. To check out some of these projects, visit our Mouse Maker Hall of Fame.

Thanks all of our volunteers that joined us at Maker Saturday and huge shoutout to our student makers from across NYC for making with us!

Scratch Day is May 14th!

Attention all game makers! Scratch Day is May 14th!

What is Scratch Day?
Scratch Day celebrates Scratch with events all across the world! Scratch makes creating digital games and animations as easy as snapping blocks together. In Mouse's Serious Games Design Badge you can find a great tutorial on how to get started with Scratch and start designing your own games.

Get in on the fun!
Go to to find an event near you. If you're a Serious Games master and feel like sharing your scratch experience you can also host an event. Even if you're making Scratch animations in your PJ's, you can join us in celebrating Scratch !
