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.

November 7 PA Day Workshop

9:00 AM - 4 PM

Ages 8-13

Want an awesome, super-fun way to spend your November 14th PA day? Come join us at MakerKids!

The kids will create a story, then they'll learn how to bring it to life using stop motion animation or by making a comic book. We'll learn how to work with a green screen, how to film stop motion animation and learn about special effects! We'll also make costumes and capes, masks and props, carboard armour or gadgets! 

Activities:

  • learning how to chroma key (green screen)
  • making superhero gadgets and costumes like powergloves, glowing rings, arm bracers, LED props, etc
  • 3D printing a miniature version of your hero
  • learning stop motion animation using iPads to animate the 3D printed object
  • learning how to use GIMP, a free image editing software to insert themselves into a scanned comic book.

Imagine it, make it!


 

Please note: advance registration is required for this event. 

 

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 8-13. 

 


 

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 5 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.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We are located at 2241 Dundas St W, about a 5 walk from Dundas West TTC subway station. The 504 King Street car also stops nearby. If you are driving, there is parking across the street at Loblaws.
