3D Design And Printing NYC (Classes)

Yvonne Shortt, the Executive Director of the Rego Park Green Alliance, is a  pioneer in Creative STEM. Creative STEM engages artists, historians, designers, and so many of our disenfranchised and disengaged youth. It is a strong program that promotes empowerment, education, and sustainability.

The Rego Park Green Alliance is teaching 3D Design and Printing in schools and non profits in Manhattan and Queens. "3D Design and Printing is a great way to teach STEM to students who might not otherwise be engaged," says Mrs. Shortt.  "Our miniature doll house furniture class has been very effective for girls and our toy design class has been great for the boys," says Mrs. Shortt.  The Rego Park Green Alliance will also be teaching a free intro class at the NYC Queens Public Library this winter for 1 1/2 hours in Forest Hills.

You can also take 3D design and printing at the Rego Park Green Alliance space at 36-46 37th Street in LIC. The location is accessible by train and car. To find class dates go to or call the office at 347 201 2186.

The Rego Park Green Alliance is a group that acts in a non profit manner and is fiscally sponsored by Open Space Institute a 501c3 organization.

Our School Garden Will Go National

Our School Garden Will Go National

In May, the Rego Park Green Alliance worked with students from 4th grade to create a vegetable garden.We were partially financed by YSA and Citizens Committee. A small portion of our story will air nationally. We can be seen in New York on channel 5 (FOX), 9:30 AM on Saturday 10/20. 

Thank you P.S. 139 4th grade class, Mrs. Efrem, and Mrs. Meade for helping to make this happen. I don't know how much of our story will air, but it was great to have the kids being interviewed. Hopefully we will inspire others to make a difference!
