The MakerKids Difference

Great Instructors

Our instructors are highly trained and come from various backgrounds, including engineering, theatre, music and design. They have worked at City of Toronto, P&G and YMCA. CEO, Jenn Turliuk, attended the Graduate Studies Program at NASA’s Singularity University and business school at Queen’s University.

Leading Edge Technology

We use leading edge technology used by industry professionals. We use Arduinos, which was used to prototype the Square Reader, in our robotics programs. Kids will work with real coding languages, wires, LEDs and more to create their robotic inventions.

Space to Experiment

Our makerspace is a safe space for kids to experiment. Our instructors are first aid trained and have police checks. We have students from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We are capable of working with kids with different learning abilities. Kids work in groups, design on and offscreen and have time for games/park.

My boys flourish here and look forward to it every week. They show social skills improvement and more confidence since coming to MakerKids and finding their “tribe.” Happy children make me a happy and grateful mom. Thanks MakerKids for creating programs for my quirky, “outside the box thinking” boys.



I love that the kids take the lead on their projects and learn how to achieve their goals Absolutely the kind of things my kids are interested in exploring in a guided setting!


This MakerKids Graduate learned key sound, robotics and design concepts and now runs his own business fixing stereo equipment in his neighbourhood!
