Mini MakerKids introduces kids in grades 1 and 2 to our core technology topics: Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. At our Mini MakerKids camp, your child gets 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 design and experimentation. Each day your child will build on the skills they learned the day before, coming out of camp with transferable technical skills and social skills.
The daily cross-discipline exposure puts a focus on valuable skills and coming back to now familiar platforms each day allows kids to see real progress as their abilities grow. Each of our Mini Makers camps also has a theme that matches what the older kids are doing (Robotics, Coding, Minecraft) and throughout the week all of their projects tie back to the theme to reinforce the importance of interconnectivity in technology.
Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning
