The Y Creator Space (YCS) is a free STEM-based Maker program serving Pittsburgh-area youth after school, in school, and during the summer. At YCS, youth ages 9-13 develop grit, innovation, collaboration, and problem-solving skills through projects involving 3D printing, robotics, graphic design, circuitry, engineering, and more. The program hub is at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA, but YCS also delivers enrichment and outreach programming in Allentown and throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region.
