Many people ask us about how to create a makerspace for youth.

MakerKids’ Recipe:

1. Dedicated space
2. Real Tools
3. Process over Product
4. Interest Driven
5. Kids Teaching Kids
6. Kids Teaching Us
7. Exhibition
8. Community

Some key principles:

• It’s OK to fail
• Experiential Learning – Learn by doing
• Choose to celebrate Making (not just what they’ve made)

We are available for consulting for organizations who would like to set up makerspaces (eg. libraries, museums, other groups etc)  or come up with maker activities. Please email us at [email protected].
