LIC/ASTORIA JOURNAL: "New Makerspace Opens at Variety Boys & Girls Club"
Makerspace Astoria Queens

Creative Queens residents now have a new local space to let out their inner maker.

Last Tuesday, the Variety Boys and Girls Club and IONYC officially unveiled their new makerspace, equipped with electronics, power and woodworking tools, and 3D-printing technology.

The collaboration started when two local tech entrepreneurs, Joe Kim and Louis Cooper, decided they wanted a regular space for their projects. They founded IONYC, a community of creative people and “makers,” which Kim described as individuals who make things out tools and scrap materials using technology.
