Huge fun at NYC Summer Quest Maker Party

Hive NYC clearly threw a fantastic Maker Party last Thursday at NYC Summer Quest, a five-week summer learning program led by the Department of Education, The Fund for Public Schools and The Department of Youth and Community Development.

The program is designed to combat summer learning loss by engaging students in fun, project-based academic and enrichment activities.

The kids clearly enjoyed the activities - ranging from stop-motion animation techniques and HTML/CSS programming to digital beat-making and building paper circuits.
