Real-World Technical Skills
Kids learn industry-leading technologies, equipping them for high-earning careers of the future.
Putting Projects into Practice
Kids don’t just learn programming concepts – they get to use them to make real projects like games.
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.

MakerKids founded the first makerspace for kids in the world in 2010, and went on to pioneer an industry and transform education. Today, kids can access MakerKids’ award-winning programs on Coding. Minecraft and Robotics from the comfort of their own home.
We’ve been invited to give talks about our work around the world, at SXSW, MakerCon, Maker Faire, TEDx and more. We have also written a book about our work, called Every Child A Maker – as well as a children’s book called The MakerKid.
We’ve trained educators and helped school boards and libraries implement makerspaces.
We’ve run programs for companies such as Twitter and Ultimate Software – for their employees’ kids.
Kids will experience award-winning curriculum built by engineers, entrepreneurs, and graduates of the Singularity University program at NASA, and refined over 11+ years.
