NBC 5 Chicago visited CYC-Rebecca K. Crown in Chicago's South Shore community to learn about CYC's Maker Lab, a creative and technical workshop where children and teens can see their creativity come to life with software and tools like 3-D printers and vinyl cutters. CYC was able to build this Maker Lab thanks to the support of CareerBuilder and Rivers Casino. CYC is building its second Maker Lab at CYC-Elliott Donnelley Youth Center thanks to the support of Tyson Foods.
NBC spoke with CYC Board Member Roger Shores, CYC Family Engagement Manager Steven Willis, and CYC participant and future scientist Alainia. Watch the video to find out how the CYC Maker Lab is making a difference.
