Does your child want to share an invention they made? Do they want to build something amazing with their best friend?
Your child is invited to bring a friend to one of their classes!
This is a great way for your child to showcase what they’ve learned and share the MakerKids experience. Bringing a friend can foster different perspectives, creativity and confidence. Benefits of bringing a friend or sibling:
- Builds confidence and self-esteem
- Fosters social skills, communication and teamwork
- Good for new students who might be anxious or shy
After showing off their project, your child will also be encouraged to guide their friend through the basics of their chosen program or help them complete a beginner project. Learning how to guide their friends without doing it for them will help them to solidify the foundations they have already learned and our Maker-Mentors (Instructors) will help both of them with the valuable communications skills necessary to progress. Who knows, your child may discover the desire to become a Maker-Mentor when they are older, much like the Makers from the past years who went on to do just that!
Details: We will need to know which class they want to join, and have their parents fill out a form with their name, emergency contact information, etc. Their friend must be in the same age group (e.g. Grades 1-2, 3-5 and 6-8). We will have laptops, all the tools and supplies ready.
Spaces are limited in class. Let us know as soon as possible. Due to limited space in some of our classes, if a class is full maker-members may be invited to bring their friend to a trial class instead.
>>> To reserve a spot, please fill out the form below for the location where your child is a member.
See you soon!
Note: if none of the ‘Bring a Friend Week’ dates work for you, we also have limited availability for Bring a Friend visits throughout the year – members may bring guests for a FREE first class, space permitting.
