Bring Your Ideas to MiY

Make It Yourself (MiY) gives residents of all ages access to tools, techniques and hands-on learning experiences that will spark their imaginations and enrich their lives. A particular focus will be given to young people, with the goal of inspiring/nurturing their interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). STEM education is increasingly important as students prepare for careers in our 21st century, technology-dependent, global economy. Looking at global technology trends, these learning and "making" experiences are going to be vital for current and future generations.

 


 

MiY provides a variety of opportunities for the public to learn new skills, cultivate and prototype new ideas, as well as collaborate with others to create things :

  • Our annual "Summer of MAKE" initiative which provides children and teens with a stimulating and experience rich environment making STEM based projects and builds.
  • Monthly and bi-monthly instructor led activities for children, teens and adults
  • Large-scale family-friendly events such as Art-tronics, Cardboard Challenge, New Jersey Makers Day and our Mini Maker Exhibition

Piscataway Library has always been a destination for consuming content. Now the library is a place you can go to create, too!

Currently, access for use of our makerspace resources is available by appointment only.
