Putting Projects into Practice

Confidence & Social Skills
Embedded in all our programs are social skill lessons, and the chance for kids to socialize with like-minded peers.
A Positive Approach to Tech
We want every child to leave MakerKids with the belief that they can use technology to shape the world around them.
Why Parents and Children
With a passion for youth and technology, our Maker Mentors recognize the uniqueness of your child and fosters their creative side and joy for STEM. Maker Mentors are trained to have students focus on the why and discover the logic behind the code instead of following a prescriptive set of instructions.
Programs are built for all interests and experience levels. See the excitement in your child as they watch their work come to life. All classes include mini-lessons on internet safety and computer literacy so your child is better prepared to navigate the digital world.
With a 5 to 1 child to staff ratio and a focus on collaborative problem solving our classes are designed for your child to actively participate. Parents are amazed at how fast their child opens up socially, as they connect and build friendships with like-minded children.
