Reserve your child’s spot in our leading-edge virtual camps

At MakerKids we provide ongoing virtual camps that students can join from the comfort of home, at a time that works for you.

Are you looking for the perfect activity for your son or daughter?

Our live virtual STEM camps will quickly have them creating fun projects within a group of their peers at whatever level they are currently at. Our live instructors make sure that they get the help they need at exactly the right time.

Interested in online kids’ STEM camps and learning? Your child will learn the foundations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), while building key social and change-making skills. Kids will create their own inventions in our daily camps. Camps are 2 hour sessions once a day (5 days a week). Sign up for the daily timeslot of your choice and pay on a weekly basis.

Timeslots for our online STEM camps are limited, so register ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Live Instructors

Our online 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 offer 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 5 students per teacher.

Whether you call it digital, virtual, remote, online, learn from home, or videoconference – participants will learn together in small groups from live teachers!

STEM Camps for Kids

Mini MakerKids Camps

Grades 1-2

Mini Makers introduces kids to our core technology topics: Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. Your child will get to work on a variety of projects each day in small groups. They will design their own video game, create robotic inventions, explore the 3D design world of Minecraft, and do STEM experimentation. Each day your child will build on the skills they’ve learned, leaving with transferable technical and social skills.

The daily cross-discipline exposure focuses on valuable skills and allows kids to see progress as their abilities grow. Their projects tie back to this theme to reinforce the importance of interconnectivity in technology.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

Idea Incubator STEM Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

In our Idea Incubator STEM Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics: Coding, Robotics and Minecraft.

If you’re looking for inspiring STEM education, this is the right place! In each camp, kids make something awesome, create their own projects and collaborate with others. Build leadership skills, meet other kids who are makers, make your own project, and more.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

STEM Camps for Kids
Coding Camps for Kids

Coding Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Coding is an important language to learn. With the demand for STEM workers increasing, learning coding from an early age is a sure way to gain an advantage in today’s competitive career world. Kids code games, websites and more. They learn how computers work, exercise creativity, and build resilience and perseverance when trouble-shooting their code.

Kids will learn everything they need to know to code their very own game: character development, storyboarding, animation, environment and level design, beta testing and, of course, coding.

Skills Learned: Resilience, Confidence, Internet Safety, Logic, Game Design, Beta-Testing

Robotics Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Kids use online robotics simulator technology to learn how to make electronic creations that they previously only dreamed of. Make virtual lights light up, wire circuits, and code a virtual ‘robot brain’ to make something awesome. Kids get to see the results of their code right before their eyes. They realize that they can make things that others can use. These skills will help them learn to build projects such as nightlights, motion-activated alarms, rovers, and more. Kids exercise creativity by developing project ideas, learn to design projects for specific user needs, and give and receive feedback on their designs

Skills Learned: Self-Confidence, Creativity, Teamwork, Coding, Electronics, Math, Reading, Writing, Design

Robotics Camps for Kids
Minecraft Camps for Kids

Minecraft Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

In our Minecraft programs, kids learn how to make Minecraft even more awesome, how computers and servers work, and core computer programming concepts while collaborating with kids equally excited about Minecraft.

We use the incredibly popular game Minecraft as a medium to help kids build transferable skills such as coding, electronics, 3D design, servers, and more. We leverage kids’ interest in Minecraft as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics such as Robotics and Coding. Minecraft is also a great medium for teaching positive netizen skills and communication skills. Kids build amazing digital creations.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Patience, Communication, Teamwork, Problem-Solving, Coding, 3D Design

MakerKids was a great experience for my kids this summer. One of my sons did 4 different weeks and each was a different program. Jacob loved Makerkids and learned a great deal about electronics and computer programming. These programs are the way if the future. Jacob has expressed interest in working at Makerkids one day. It really was a very positive experience for him as well as our younger son who joined him for one of the weeks. I recommend MakerKids to anyone whose kids want to try something different, it is just great!
