Activity: Kinetic Animals with Staten Island MakerSpace

Make your own kinetic paper animals with Deborah from MakerSpace NYC! How many things can you make from paper? From just one piece of copy paper, you can create a flying animal. Cut pieces and adhere them together so you can manipulate the wings of a paper bird, dinosaur – or any animal you can imagine!

Makerspace NYC is a non-profit workspace for artists and creative entrepreneurs. We offer low cost and free memberships to people so that they can have access to industrial and advanced manufacturing technology to work on their own projects, build small businesses, and learn new skills. Adults can take classes in a wide variety of industrial arts including welding, blacksmithing, woodworking, laser cutting, 3D printing, ceramics, sewing, and more. Families and K-12 students can participate in workshops that focus on learning about math, physics, engineering, and technology through an arts based lens. Makerspace NYC has two locations: Staten Island Makerspace in Stapleton, SI, and Futureworks Makerspace in the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
