Event Details

“At first when I came here, I had no idea how any of this electric stuff worked, and I’m just like, how I am going to be able to make this? But over time with my mistakes, I realized it gets easier and it comes to me and sometimes making a mistake actually teaches you something – why something doesn’t work.

Want an awesome, super-fun way to prepare for Halloween? Come join us at MakerKids!

FAQs

What have other kids learnt at our past programs? 

 “At first when I came here, I had no idea how any of this electric stuff worked, and I’m just like, how I am going to be able to make this? But over time with my mistakes, I realized it gets easier and it comes to me and sometimes making a mistake actually teaches you something – why something doesn’t work.”


What skill level is this program appropriate for?

No previous experience is required-just a desire to make things! Our instructors will show you how to use any tools safely, and teach you anything else you might want to know. If your child already experience with using similar tools or materials - that's great too!

What age range is this program appropriate for?

This workshop is approriate for ages 8-18. 

What is your instructor to student ratio?
1:5

How many 3D printers do you have?
7

Do you have any safety measures in place?
Yes, we have safety procedures and training for the kids on how to use the tools safely. Our instructors are also well trained and we usually have a ratio of 1 instructor per 4 kids.  Our woodworking shop has a lock on it and kids can use it safely when adults are around to supervise. Kids also wear safety goggles when using certain tools or materials. Any sharp tools are kept well out of reach unless someone needs to use them for a particular project with adult supervision. If you have any questions about this, please contact us. 

What is your philosophy towards making?

Our philosophy is to encourage creativity and empower kids with their own ideas for projects. We encourage all kids to participate in our programs and we don't push towards certain activities based on gender or stereotype - it's up to the child what they want to explore and learn about! We also like to encourage children in making their own decisions and to learn by doing, while we act as mentors instead of doing things for them.


Do I have to purchase a ticket in advance? 

Yes. 

Do I need to stay with my child during the event?

No.

I'm a parent staying with my child. Do I need to purchase a ticket for myself?
No. You only need to purchase a ticket for each child. (eg. 2 children+parent=2 tickets)

Does my child need to bring a lunch or snacks?

Yes.
