MakerKids x ACES

ACES has teamed up with MakerKids to offer a unique social skills group geared towards kids who love technology and need some extra practice building friendships. Kids will learn some important social skills and practice making friends. Target skills may include asking questions to peers, maintaining a conversation, cooperating to make group decisions and being more flexible when working with peers.

Breaks and games are also included for kids to exercise their imagination, have fun and strengthen team-building.

1 hour per week for 6 weeks
Clients will be able to attend the group with their ACES staff.

Minecraft: Ages 5-12

Playing Minecraft on the MakerKids multiplayer server is a fun and social way for kids to gain fundamental desktop computer operating system experience.  As kids become more adept at navigating and modifying the virtual 3D world, new challenges such as learning to run text based commands and utilizing redstone (Minecraft’s version of electronics) in their builds turns Minecraft into even more of an educational platform to help build transferable technical skills.

We leverage kids’ interest in Minecraft as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics, and provide opportunity for teaching positive netizen, teamwork, and communication skills.
