MakerKids is the original makerspace for kids.
MakerKids CEO Jennifer Turliuk has been invited to give talks about our work at key industry conferences.
MakerKids’ work has been featured in major media including Wired, CTV, CBC, Breakfast TV, Forbes, Globe and Mail, and many more. MakerKids has written curriculum for Intel and 3D Systems, provided educator training for school boards (e.g. the Toronto Catholic District School Board, private schools, and more), helped with the creation and implementation of makerspace strategies for companies and organizations (e.g. the Toronto Public Library, schools, etc), and authored articles on its work for MAKE Magazine and more. MakerKids has created a category – kids don’t just go to music, art, dance and sport activities after school or during the summers anymore – they also go to programs on coding, robotics, and Minecraft and learn emotional and interpersonal skills that help vastly improve their lives.
