What do Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have in common in their educational backgrounds?

No, they didn’t all go to Ivy League universities – but they all went to technology summer camps or after-school programs or got involved with technology from an early age.

MakerKids runs award-winning kids classes, after-school and weekend programs, summer camps, 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?

Give Your Child the Skills of the Future

Your child will learn the skills and mindsets needed to change the world.

MakerKids specializes in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs with highly trained instructors. We run camps, after-school programs, private classes and more.
STEM jobs are in demand and an increasing number of careers look for STEM skills. Studies show that kids decide between ages 7-12 whether they will consider STEM as a career option.

The key is having positive exposure to STEM. Maybe it’s time your child got excited about STEM with us?

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.

Technical Skills

Your kids will learn from NASA-educated entrepreneurs, teachers and engineers. These professional skills will help them become leaders in their future careers.

Social Skills

Your kids 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.

STEM Camps for Kids

Mini MakerKids 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.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

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.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

Meet Ariel, One of Our Maker-Mentors

Hello, my name is Ariel! I have worked for the YMCA, volunteered for day camps and had a number of placements in other learning spaces such as TDSB classrooms and the Boys and Girls Club. I completed my undergrad at Ryerson University where I studied Early Childhood Education. I most recently earned my Bachelors of Education at University of Ontario Institute of Technology where I graduated with the highest distinction. More simply put, I love learning.

Specialties: Teaching children with unique skills and abilities, meeting diverse learning needs and optimism!

MakerKids: The Original Maker Programs for Kids

MakerKids founded the first makerspace for kids in the world in 2010, and went on to pioneer an industry and transform education.

We’ve been invited to give talks about our work around the world, at SXSW, MakerCon, Maker Faire, TEDx and more.

We’ve trained educators and helped school boards and libraries implement makerspaces.

We’ve run programs for Google and Twitter, for their employees’ kids.

Now, kids can access MakerKids’ award-winning programs on Coding. Minecraft and Robotics from the comfort of their own home.
