At the NYC Coordinator meet-up in January, we had the fantastic idea to host a Coordinator-only Maker Night. This will be another great opportunity to connect with Coordinators from throughout the five boroughs, and will also allow you to tinker with new technologies that you can bring back to your squad!

When? Wednesday, March 23rd, from 4-6pm

Where? At Mouse HQ! 55 Broad St., 16th Floor, New York, NY 10004. Easy access from the J/Z at Broad St., the 2/3/4/5 at Wall St., and the 1/R at South Ferry.

Who? Mouse Squad Coordinators! (Bring another teacher or admin from your school as a +1!)

What? An open maker space to tinker with code, electronics, 3D printing, gaming and more! Ask questions of other Coordinators and Mouse staff. Have fun and make stuff! If you have a fun project and want to present let us know!

RSVP: Fill out this form or email patrick@mouse.org if you will be joining us. Hope to see you here at Mouse HQ!

Can’t make it to Maker Night, but still want to connect with the Mouse Learning Design Team? Sign-up for a check-in call!

Speaking of making things, the next student Maker Nights are Feb 25th and March 30th.

New Serif In Town

serif-explained.pngHave you ever looked at a word up close and noticed some fonts have little lines attached to the ends of letters? Those are called "serifs." When a set of letters has them, they’re called “serif fonts” and when they don’t have them, they’re called “sans serif fonts.” This month we're challenging you to get creative with serifs (or sans serifs!) by making your own font! And since Pi Day is happening up on March 14th, (because of the number Pi) we want you to focus on creating a new font for numbers!
