Mini Makers Camps

Grades 1-2

Mini Makers introduces kids to our core technology topics: Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. Your child will get to work on a variety of projects each day in small groups. They will design their own video game, create robotic inventions, explore the 3D design world of Minecraft, and do STEM experimentation. Each day your child will build on the skills they’ve learned, leaving with transferable technical and social skills.

The daily cross-discipline exposure focuses on valuable skills and allows kids to see progress as their abilities grow. Their projects tie back to this theme to reinforce the importance of interconnectivity in technology.

Idea Incubator STEM Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

In our Idea Incubator STEM Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics: Coding, Robotics and Minecraft.

If you’re looking for inspiring STEM education, this is the right place! In each camp, kids make something awesome, create their own projects and collaborate with others. Build leadership skills, meet other kids who are makers, make your own project, and more.

Coding Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Coding is an important language to learn. With the demand for STEM workers increasing, learning coding from an early age is a sure way to gain an advantage in today’s competitive career world. Kids code games, websites and more. They learn how computers work, exercise creativity, and build resilience and perseverance when trouble-shooting their code.

Kids will learn everything they need to know to code their very own game: character development, storyboarding, animation, environment and level design, beta testing and, of course, coding.

Robotics Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Kids use online robotics simulator technology to learn how to make electronic creations that they previously only dreamed of. Make virtual lights light up, wire circuits, and code a virtual ‘robot brain’ to make something awesome. Kids get to see the results of their code right before their eyes. They realize that they can make things that others can use. These skills will help them learn to build projects such as nightlights, motion-activated alarms, rovers, and more. Kids exercise creativity by developing project ideas, learn to design projects for specific user needs, and give and receive feedback on their designs

Minecraft Camps for Kids

Minecraft Camps

Grades 1-2, 3-5 and 6-8

In our Minecraft programs, kids learn how to make Minecraft even more awesome, how computers and servers work, and core computer programming concepts while collaborating with kids equally excited about Minecraft.

We use the incredibly popular game Minecraft as a medium to help kids build transferable skills such as coding, electronics, 3D design, servers, and more. We leverage kids’ interest in Minecraft as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics such as Robotics and Coding. Minecraft is also a great medium for teaching positive netizen skills and communication skills. Kids build amazing digital creations.

What kids will work on in the sessions depends on the topic of that camp day, what grade they are in, and if they have been at MakerKids before. In general, experienced kids will have the opportunity to work independently on our online curriculum while newer kids and MiniMakers can follow along with our Mentors in guided lessons and projects.

The kids get to play outdoors at a nearby family-friendly park during full day programs, like PA days and camps. All our programs integrate time for offscreen games, activities and working with others. Kids will design and brainstorm together, as well as test each other’s inventions on and off screen. We have a strong emphasis on soft skills, not only technical skills. We have stretch breaks and eye breaks to encourage kids to have good screen hygiene. Kids will leave with well-rounded skills and experiences that they can carry with them throughout their lives.
