Reserve Your Child’s Birthday Party: Robotics, Coding or Minecraft
Your child will learn the foundations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), while building key social and change-making skills. Kids will create their own inventions in our award-winning birthday parties.
Mini MakerKids Parties
Welcome Mini MakerKids! This program is designed for little ones who like to think big. Kids will learn how to create and make using various platforms and gadgets. Kids will be exposed to both technical and 21st-century skills, like creativity and confidence. Based on STEM education, kids will build a strong foundation for out-of-the-box thinking, coding and how computers work. Using logic and design, kids will make something amazing and out of this world.
Sampler Party: Make it Electric! (Gr. 1+)
Moving through all three of the topics we offer at MakerKids, kids discover the role that electricity plays in each. Starting off by making an interactive Microbit robot, kids continue on to program a video game in Scratch, and finally work together to build a custom world in Minecraft.
Coding Birthday Party
Video games can open up a whole new world of imagination and creativity. Coding your own video game pushes kids to explore different possibilities and scenarios. Kids will create their own games and play other kids’ games too!
Video Game Coding: Arcade Games (Gr. 3+)
Working in Scratch’s block based coding environment, kids follow along programming and customizing their very own arcade video game. Once their game is fully functional, more experienced makers have the chance to keep on adding an endless array of features or even design their own.
Video Game Coding: Platformers (Gr. 5+)
Stencyl is professional 2D game development software that includes a physics engine, collision detection, and a block based option for writing behaviours. While learning what goes into making a video game, kids create their own Nintendo-like platformer that look ready for the appstore.
Robotics Birthday Party
In our Robotics party, kids will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using a robotic microcontroller and learning how to code. They can create their own robotic invention and make it light up.
Robotics: Robotic Pets (Gr. 3+)
Using the Microbit microcontroller, kids learn the basics of controlling electricity while making robots into their own interactive pets. For more experienced makers the functionality they can add to what their pet can do grows increasingly complex.
Robotics: Light Show (Gr. 5+)
The Arduino is a prototyping microcontroller popular with both hobbyists and professionals. Kids learn to use a breadboard to wire up circuitry the Arduino can connect to, and then to program their robot to interact with their lights and switches creating their very own customized light show.
Minecraft Birthday Party
Minecraft birthday parties at Makerkids have something for everyone. Hop into a block based virtual world with your friends and work together to build amazing creations.
Minecraft Multiplayer: Zoo Keepers (Gr. 3+)
Kids work together to design a zoo, build the appropriate environments, populate it with creatures, and outfit it with some redstone automation.
Minecraft Multiplayer: Amusement Park (Gr. 5+)
Using World Edit plugin commands and redstone circuitry, kids design, build, and get to enjoy all the activities you would find at a themepark.
MakerKids was perfect for my son ‘s birthday party. He and his friends love to build stuff so the hands on activities kept them engaged the whole time. The staff member who helped was fantastic and it was a breeze to arrange. I’d highly recommend MakerKids and their birthday party packages
Thank you for existing so my son could have his best birthday party ever. The instructor, Graham, was awesome! So friendly and knowledgeable and patient. A great time was had by all!
