Clubs with Makers exist in schools, community centers, and in neighborhoods. Some are open to new members, and others are only for the youth who are already part of the institution that hosts the club. To add your group to the directory, please fill out our Affiliated Clubs Application.


WLA's Young Maker Club

Wilton,
Contact: Susan Lauricella

Teens in grades 7-11, join our young maker program, part of the national Young Makers Club, which was started in 2010 as a collaboration between Make, Pixar, and Exploratorium. Makers comprise a community of creative and technical people that help one another bring ideas to life. The Maker movement is all about innovation, invention, imagination and creativity. Maker clubs are growing all over the country and the world in spaces brimming with enthusiasm, passion, encouragement and collaboration. Be part of our community and work with mentors in our Innovation Station to design and create an open-ended project culminating in the opportunity to share and exhibit at a showcase event at the end of May. Participants will be introduced to 3D printing, soldering, Arduino, coding, electronic sewing and other tinkering tools with the goal of creating their own self-directed project. Projects might include electronic wearables, interactive games, furniture, electronic gadgets, motorized design, light-up jewelry, musical instruments., etc. We encourage any teen from 7th-11th grade who is interested in tinkering, learning and creating to join us. We'll meet from the end of January until the end of May on the following dates: 1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/22, 4/29, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20 & 5/30.
