Unleash Your Child’s Potential
Rated #1 Kids Programs (Toronto Life Magazine)
What do Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have in common in their educational background?
No, they didn’t all go to Ivy League universities – but they all went to technology summer camps or after-school programs.
MakerKids runs summer camps, after-school programs and parties on Robotics, Coding and Minecraft. But what we’re really all about is helping kids develop the skills and confidence to become innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs.
Graduates of our programs have started their own businesses, presented their projects on national TV, and been featured in magazines. What will your child create?
Your Child Will Learn:
21st century skills
Kids have gone from having emotional or academic difficulties to leading clubs, improving their marks, and taking on more responsibility and ownership at home.
Your child will learn from NASA-educated entrepreneurs, teachers and engineers. These professional skills will help them become a leader in their future career.
Your child will feel like they fit in with this community of like-minded peers and feel a sense of belonging. Kids make friends, learn conflict resolution skills, and collaborate to build amazing projects.
Join our programs: 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 membership program. Classes are 1.5 or 2 hours each week after school or on the weekends. Sign up for the timeslot of your choice and pay on a monthly basis.
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.
Our coding programs are interdisciplinary. Programs also involve design, logic, math, computer skills, teamwork and creativity
“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!”
“MakerKids was a great experience for my kids this summer. One of my sons did 4 different weeks and each was a different program. Jacob loved MakerKids and learned a great deal about electronics and computer programming. These programs are the way if the future. It really was a very positive experience for him as well as our younger son who joined him for one of the weeks. I recommend MakerKids to anyone whose kids want to try something different, it is just great!”
