More About Our Virtual Offerings:
Our curriculum platform is a virtual platform that can be accessed from home. In addition, we are using an excellent and highly secure screen-sharing technology solution which will enable makers to continue learning, socialization and development from home by participating in web-calls and receiving their lessons from Maker-Mentors virtually. During a time where kids may not have as much interaction with other kids as usual available to them, we hope that these virtual programs will provide positive interaction and boost their moods. They will get to interact with regular classmates each week in their programs. This will also enable us to continue employing our excellent Maker-Mentors and have them continue to be available to your makers both during and after this period. We will maintain a 1:8 or better instructor to kid ratio and will split the kids into groups of maximum 8 for most activities. We also plan to add some special bonuses of things kids can do throughout the weeks!
Our live virtual sessions will quickly have young makers creating fun projects within a group of their online peers. Live instructors make sure that each participant gets the help they need at exactly the right time.
- Live Instructors: Our virtual environment lets your child interact with the instructor much as they would in person. Video conferencing and screen-sharing capabilities allow teachers to work with participants in a group as well as individually.
- Individualized Approach: We recognize that each maker learns best at their own pace. Maker-Mentors will be offering individual support and help with project design and debugging to each maker individually. The video conferencing technology we use allows instructors to view each maker’s work as needed.
- Small Group Sizes: Groups have a maximum of 8 students per teacher.
