The MakerKids Difference
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, Jennifer Turliuk, attended the Graduate Studies Program at NASA’s Singularity University and business school at Queen’s University.
Space to Experiment
Our makerspace is a safe space for kids to experiment. Our instructors are first aid trained, police checked, go through rigorous training and assist lead instructors before teaching. Our mentors are trained to work with different learning abilities and behavioural issues. Kids work in groups, design on and offscreen and have time for games/park.
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 packagesAlison
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!
This MakerKids Graduate learned key sound, robotics and design concepts and now runs his own business fixing stereo equipment in his neighbourhood!

Does my child need experience coding or with Arduinos?
Our classes are open to new and experienced kids of all backgrounds. With our small ratio of 1 instructor for every 8 kids, our instructors will be able to work with each child’s individual needs. We go over robotics fundamentals and may hold breakout sessions for beginners and advanced students.
Can younger or older siblings join?
Yes, younger and older silblings are welcome to join. Parents are all welcome to stay as well.
What will my kid make?
Kids will create robotic inventions using sound. Kids are in charge of their own projects, from start to finish, and can design their own creations. Some past robotics projections include: cat alarms, voice records and sound machines that can play a multitude of notes! There are no physical take-aways in the program, as materials are reused and re-purposed for future students. Kids will leave with a comprehensive understanding of robotics, design and electronics and the actual code used to program the Arduinos.
