Social-Emotional Skills Practice
for Students of Diverse Abilities

We offer unique social-emotional skills-based programs geared towards kids who love computer games and could use some extra practice building friendships and other social-emotional skills. Kids will learn some important social-emotional skills and practice making friends through fun and interactive coding, robotics and/or Minecraft activities. Target skills may include asking questions to peers, maintaining a conversation, cooperating to make group decisions and being more flexible when playing with peers.

Participating in MakerKids programs is a fun and social way for kids to gain fundamental technical skills. As kids become more adept at navigating and modifying the interfaces they are presented with, new challenges such as learning to code turns the experience into even more of an educational platform to help build transferable technical skills.

While we leverage kids’ interest in technology as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics, just as important in a cooperative group environment is the opportunity for teaching positive netizen, teamwork, and communication skills.

Social-Emotional Skills Programs for Tech-Loving Children with Diverse Abilities

Build Resilience with Coding

Coding requires a lot of trial and error. Programmers spend most of their time figuring out why the code they think should be working, keeps failing. The resilience to dig into error messages, run countless tests, address numerous bugs, and often starting from scratch with a different approach, is what eventually leads to rewarding success. This resilience can be used in many areas of life and is a valued skill worth having.

Build Social Skills with Minecraft

Kids love Minecraft – and MakerKids makes this online game both fun and a great way to learn important skills such as teamwork, cooperation, flexibility, and more. MakerKids provides learners with an online opportunity to play Minecraft while developing their social skills. We offer a small group experience and target skills such as teamwork, cooperation, flexibility, and more

Build Confidence with Robotics

Robotics involves a lot of technical skill and deep thinking. Concepts like circuitry can be tricky to work with. The best understanding comes from seeing things in action, and that requires first giving it a try.
In addition to the testing required for inquiry-based learning, with robots, there are countless reasons why something doesn’t work as intended. Having the self-confidence to experiment while working through a problem and trying new things to see which one works is an asset in all areas of life.

The original tech programs for kids

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 Google and Twitter, for their employees’ kids.

Your child will experience award-winning curriculum built by engineers, entrepreneurs, and graduates of the Singularity University program at NASA, and refined over 11+ years.
